This newest addition to the Cincinnati Zoo, a female giraffe, was born last Saturday, April 2, 2011.

She's the first giraffe born at at the Cincinnati Zoo in 26 years. Head on over to their facebook page and suggest a name!

Oh, and did you know that giraffes can (sort of) swim? Check out Darren Naish's post on the topic - it was, incidentally, one of the 50 posts selected for this year's Open Lab.
