DALLAS (AP) - The Dallas Zoo has a new giraffe with the birth of a healthy male calf.

Zoo officials say the reticulated giraffe already measures 6 feet tall and weighs about 120 pounds.

No name has been chosen yet for the giraffe, whose birth was announced Wednesday. Zoo officials say first-time mother Chrystal gave birth on Sunday.

The Dallas Zoo’s giraffe herd has grown to a dozen, with five females and seven males.
