A baby giraffe was born last Wednesday to six-year old Mia. She came to Miami from the Dickerson Park Zoo in Springfield, in 2007.

The father is a 16-year old male giraffe named Fezzik who was born at the St. Louis Zoo.

The newborn, who hasn't been named yet, weighs more than 150-pounds and stands close to six-feet tall.  He's the 46th giraffe to be born at the Miami Zoo.
