Kansas City, MO - The Kansas City Zoo just welcomed a new addition - a baby giraffe!

The Zoo reports the female baby giraffe was born Friday, February 2, at 4:57 a.m. and weighed in at 105 pounds and is already standing 5-feet-tall.

A neo-natal exam performed this morning showed the calf is in good health.

Right now, she is bonding with her mom behind the scenes and won’t be on exhibit until temperatures permit.
