Baby Giraffe Born at Como Zoo
The Como Zoo welcomed a baby giraffe on Tuesday! The adorable giraffe is a male and weighed in at 160 lbs and stands 6 feet, 4 inches, says KARE 11. The baby hasn't been named yet.
The little giraffe made his rounds on the internet before he was even born! A picture was circulating of his hooves starting to emerge as the Como Zoo closed for the day. The Como Zoo posted about it on Twitter:
KARE 11 says that giraffes can double in height by the time they're adults, which is nuts! So this cute little guy won't stay 6 feet, 4 inches forever. He could reach 18 feet!
