(Newser) – Cute baby animal alert: The Milwaukee County Zoo has a newborn giraffe, the zoo's first one since 2003. The not-so-little guy—157 pounds and 5-feet-9-inches tall—was born to first-time parents Ziggy and Bahatika and appears happy and healthy. Zoo officials have yet to pick a name for the male calf, who is the facility's fifth giraffe.
