We have a new celebrity baby and it's right here in DFW!

On Tuesday, the Fort Worth Zoo made a surprising announcement...we have a brand new bundle of joy, a little-big baby giraffe! While we don't know the name, sex, height or weight, we do know that mama Kala and baby are doing well and currently bonding in their barn.

Surprise! This little one was born just yesterday and brings our giraffe herd to eight! Keepers and veterinary staff are watching over the new addition and will soon provide us with more information, including height, weight and gender. Calf and mom Kala are currently bonding together in their barn and the rest of the herd is being introduced to the little one. It will be a little while before the baby joins the others on exhibit, but we’ll be sure to tell you when it does. Until then, enjoy this sneak peek of the Zoo’s newest knobby-kneed big baby.

Unfortunately, this big bag of cuteness won't be featured in the giraffe exhibit just yet, however, the Fort Worth will keep us posted. Probably later in the summer, so think about that when you make summer plans with the kiddos.
