While the world STILL awaits the arrival of April the giraffe's baby in New York, Houstonians have a new reason to celebrate.
The Houston Zoo announced the birth of a female Masai giraffe this week. The baby was 6'3'' at birth, weighing a massive 139 lbs.
She doesn't have a name quite yet and she'll be sticking close to mom for the next couple of days before the public sees her.
