Baby giraffe born at Bronx Zoo
NEW YORK (WABC) -- The Bronx Zoo has released pictures of a new female giraffe calf born this month.
The zoo says the calf stays close to her mother in the Carter Giraffe Building and will be making her debut in about a week.
The baby giraffe was 6 feet tall and over 100 pounds at birth.
Giraffes are native to grasslands, savannas, and open woodlands in central, east, and southern Africa. The Baringo, or Rothschild's, giraffe is found in western Kenya and eastern Uganda.
