Zoo Announces "Dream Team" In Time For March Madness

(CINCINNATI) -- The Cincinnati Zoo has announced its "Fab Five" Dream Team just in time for the NCAA tournament.

At a press conference, the zoo's executive director, Thayne Maynard, says his team consists of five Massai giraffes, including Pekua, age 1, Mtembei, 8-months old, Kimbaumbau, 6-months-old, Tessa, age 1 and Akilah, age 1.

"After the tournament is over, the Fab Five will enjoy this summer at our new Giraffe Ridge exhibit, opening this June," said Maynard. "Guests will not only be able to meet the Fab Five eye-to-eye, but they will be able to feed the Fab Five."

The new exhibit is 27,000 square feet and features an elevated viewing platform.
