TAMPA, Fla. — There's some serious Girl Power going on at ZooTampa these days.

Three new juvenile giraffes — all young ladies, all with big personalities — are now part of the zoo's "signature encounters" meet-and-greet program for guests.

For an add-on ticket starting at $15, on Saturdays and Sundays, guests can help train Lilleeanne, Kylie and Tiana, whose ages range from four years old to just one.

Kylie and Tiana are sisters from a Virginia zoo, while Lilleeanne is a city girl from Philadelphia.
