We can hardly keep up with all the new baby animals in
On June 21, a male giraffe calf was born at Brookfield Zoo at
173 pounds and standing 5-foot-9-inches. That's one big baby,
especially considering mama giraffes give birth standing up after a
14½-month gestation period.
The calf is the 59th giraffe born at the zoo, and has the same
father as another
giraffe we love, Dave.
