Chaffee Zoo welcomes baby giraffe

FRESNO, Calif.

After a 14-month-long pregnancy, Bah Bah the giraffe gave birth to a baby girl!

The baby girl has not yet been named, but they typically don't for a couple of weeks.

Within an hour of her birth, the not-so-little girl was seen at the enclosure trying to stand up on her own.

What's unusual about the birth of baby giraffes is that their mothers are standing up during the delivery.

The baby's father Galli is not yet allowed to be with her and her mother.

This is the fifth baby for Bah Bah, which is Swahili for "parent".

Her last baby will be turning two years old in July.
