We have a new addition to the Dallas Zoo! A brand new baby giraffe, who was born to momma Chrystal on April 25th. Weighing in at 130 pounds and 5 feet and 9 inches tall, this little cutie was upright and walking just forty five minutes after birth.

As for the labor, well, it was a little longer than expected, about two and a half hours. Normally, a giraffe birth takes anywhere from one to two hours.

Unfortunately, the Dallas Zoo is keeping quiet on both the name and gender of this new baby. So stayed tuned!
