The Los Angeles Zoo officially welcomed some August babies to the public this week -- a Masai giraffe, a male Calamian deer and two Chacoan peccaries. Head to Griffith Park and meet your new neighbors, and don't forget to check out the baby Komodo dragon hatchlings, a variety of exotic hoof stock in the nursery and the first ever harbor seal pup born at L.A. Zoo. Also this week, Betty White, long-time supporter and trustee of GLAZA was named Chairman of the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association.
