OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma City Zoo has welcomed their newest addition!

A female giraffe calf was born Monday, June 22, 2015.

The newborn already stands more than 5 feet tall, according to the Oklahoma City Zoo.

The birth is the fourth for 15-year-old parents, Ellie and Bogy.

“Both mom and calf are doing well,” said Jaimee Flinchbaugh, hoofstock supervisor. “Ellie is an experienced, doting mom, and her calf is full of energy and personality. We are excited to watch her grow.”

You may be able to catch a glimpse of the unnamed calf in the giraffe yard, mid-morning through early afternoon hours.

The Oklahoma City Zoo plans to announce updates on the newborn on their Facebook and Twitter pages.
