Great Plains Zoo Welcomes New Addition

Sioux Falls, SD

There's a new addition at the Great Plains Zoo.

The 5'5", 139 pound baby girl was born on Friday.  She may sound big, but compared to her mother, she's petite.

Full-grown giraffes can grow up to 20-feet tall and can weigh up to 4,000 pounds.  To give you some perspective that's taller than most two-story homes and about the same weight as a Ford Explorer.
