The Houston Zoo Welcomes New Baby Giraffe!


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!
