The Dallas, Texas, zoo welcomed a baby giraffe earlier this month, though the female calf still remains nameless.
“We’re thrilled to share that our giraffe herd has grown by one,” the Dallas Zoo posted on Facebook. “Mom Chrystal and dad Tebogo welcomed a healthy, 131-pound baby girl on Sunday, March 19.”
In a press release, the zoo said Chrystal gave birth to a healthy female calf after a relatively short labor that morning.
Chrystal was described as “an expert mom” who remained calm during the labor.
Shortly after being born, the baby giraffe was up and moving around.
“Most of the giraffe herd, including dad Tebogo and half-sister Nea, were seen observing the new calf from a distance right after she was born,” the release read. “And the new baby was already showing interest in her older half-sibling towards the end of her first day!”
Crews at the zoo are conducting maintenance work on the giraffe habitat, but that just gives the mother and baby a little more time to bond behind the scenes, the release noted.
The zoo will make an announcement as soon as a name is chosen.
