As shared by Disney’s Animals, Science and Environment Facebook: “Oh boy, we’ve got a tall order of baby news to share. It’s a boy – a Masai giraffe calf at Disney’s Animal Kingdom! Born on June 10, the healthy calf is quite large, weighing in at 183 pounds and is nearly six-feet tall! He is playful, curious and pretty calm, spending lots of time nuzzling with mom, Lily, in a backstage barn.”
