Giraffe Born at Niabi Zoo

Niabi Zoo in Illinois has welcomed a baby giraffe into their animal family. A newborn giraffe is nearly the size of a full-grown human. This baby was six feet tall and weighed 150 lbs.

Zoo keepers were on hand for the birth and a vet checked out the baby. He is doing well and progressing naturally.

The baby is yet to be named and will not be able to be seen by the public until May, when the park opens for the season.
