We want to send a BIG (and tall!) congrats over to the Houston Zoo!
They got to welcome a brand new baby giraffe into the family on Tuesday around 12:49pm. The new baby boy weights around 165 pounds, and his mommy Tyra was pregnant with him for FOURTEEN MONTHS! Eeeek!
There isn’t a name for the new baby, but he’ll be part of the McGovern Giraffe Habitat. He already stands about stands about 6 1/2 feet tall, and could possibly grow to be as tall as 17 feet!
Check out some great pics that the Houston Chronicle got HERE!
