HOUSTON - The newest member of the Houston Zoo's giraffe herd has gotten her official name - Zindzhi!
Pronounced "zeenzee", the name has a South African origin and means 'warrior', according to the Houston Zoo.
Zindzhi was born April 10 and stood over 6 feet tall and weighed almost 140 pounds.
The newest Masai giraffe was introduced to the rest of the herd last week. Baby and mama will continue to spend time in guest-view for parts of each day as long as the weather is nice.
