On Behalf of the Giraffe Calf Staff

A healthy female Masai giraffe was born on Friday March 4, at the Houston Zoo’s McGovern Giraffe Exhibit – the first born in the African Forest section that opened in December 2010.  Awww!  The new and as-yet unnamed addition is 6’6″, weighs around 150 pounds, and arrived after a 14 month pregnancy that undoubtedly felt like 15 or 16 months, if giraffe pregnancies are anything like human ones.
