BIRMINGHAM, AL–Officials at the Birmingham Zoo stated one of the oldest giraffes in the world has died at age 24. According to reports, Morefu [the giraffe] was euthanized after veterinarians determined he was no longer responding to treatments for arthritis and other age-related health conditions.

Morefu, which is the Swahili word for “long,” arrived at the zoo in 1985.

Before his death, Morefu claimed that he remembered, “…when this whole area used to be orange trees.”
