It’s a girl! Zoo welcomes baby giraffe
Staff at a zoo in Colorado is welcoming their newest addition. Monday Bailey the giraffe gave birth to her first calf at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo.
Officials say Bailey and the female calf are doing well. They have not measured how tall the newborn is or how much it weighs but zoo keepers say she is one of the smallest baby giraffes they have ever seen.
The zoo plans to close the barn to give the new calf time to bond with her mother.
They plan to name her after they wait their traditional 30-days.
