We have giraffe!!!
It happened Friday afternoon, and Katie’s new baby took its first steps almost immediately. It’s a girl and mom is really protective at this point – but watching the calf learning to walk was incredibly cute.
The best thing might have been all of the Dallas Zoo’s other giraffes crowding around for a look. The best guess is that zoo will let people choose a new name on-line – because the live Animal Planet webcams drew more than 2-million views.
By the way – a baby giraffe at birth is about 6 feet tall, and weighs somewhere around 160 pounds.
