What a cutie!
At Busch Gardens Tampa Bay the first baby reticulated giraffe of 2012 was born on January 27th.
The newborn, was 6' 2" and weighed about 176 pounds.
Which is CRAZY for a newborn anything! But standard for giraffes.
The park now has 19 giraffes.
After a few months nursing and being watched by zoo keepers, the young baby will be introduced to the public.
She will live with the rest of her herd on the Serengeti Plain habitat which is 65-acres of free space to roam through!
Once she's old enough to head there, people will be able to get close enough to feed her during an open-truck tour!
