A baby giraffe was born in a zoo in Texas. The little giraffe boy does not have a name yet. He is 1.8 metres tall and 84 kilograms heavy. He was born on 8th of June.

When he is fully grown, he will be around 5.5 metres tall and up to 1,360 kilograms heavy. Along with the rest of the herd, he will join the African savannah exhibit. It is opening next year.

Difficult words: herd (a group of animals like giraffes or horses), exhibit (an area where many types of things are shown to people).
