HOUSTON - Visitors to the Houston Zoo on this Good Friday got a special treat. The zoo's new baby giraffe made her public debut.
The five-day old Masai giraffe strolled around the main yard at the McGovern Giraffe Habitat with mama, Tyra, by her side.
After she got acquainted with her surroundings, the team introduced the yet-to-be-named calf to the rest of the giraffe herd.
The baby was a hit with the Friday crowds. Baby and mama will continue to spend time in guest-view for parts of each day as long as the weather is nice.
The Houston Zoo currently has six Masai giraffes.
Born: Monday, April 10 at 9:04 a.m.
