HAMBURG, Germany -- The Hagenbeck Zoo in Hamburg, Germany has several new additions, including a giraffe, an elephant and a baboon.
The male giraffe calf, Mugambi, was born March 13.
The baby elephant was born the same day. He has not been named yet. The baby baboon does not yet have a name, either.
All three babies and sticking close to their mothers.
According to the German National Tourist Board, Hagenbeck Zoo "is very much part of the city's identity, and the locals are rightly proud of its history."
First opened in 1907, the privately owned zoo is now home to more than 1,800 animals and 210 species, some of which are in danger of extinction.
While it's fairly common today for zoos to create habitats that replicate animals' natural homes as closely as possible, that wasn't always the case. Hagenbeck was one of the first zoos to do this.
The zoo's founder, Carl Hagenbeck, is considered by many to be the father of the modern zoo. His ground-breaking concept of zoo-keeping -- allowing visitors to see the animals in outdoor enclosures rather than in cages -- was eventually adopted by zoos around the world.
