The pathohistological findings, microbiological and molecular findings from the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine determined that the death of Floppy the giraffe occurred as a result of a malignant tumor in the liver and metastases in the lungs, ZOO Skopje announced.

- This insidious disease is one of the most fatal in the 21st century, from which, like humans, a large number of animals suffer. Liver cancer is considered a "silent killer", and Floppy's aggressive cancer has already metastasized to the lungs, which is difficult to diagnose at an early stage, according to the announcement.
