The Living Desert Zoo and Gardens has welcomed a new baby giraffe that is already standing at an impressive 5-feet-9 tall.

The as-yet unnamed male calf weighs in at 130 pounds and was born Wednesday to mother "Dadisi" and father "Hesabu.".

"While we are always excited to announce the birth of new babies here at The Living Desert, it is especially wonderful to welcome our first baby of 2016, a beautiful giraffe calf," said Allen Monroe, the zoo's president and CEO. "Both mother and baby are doing well."

The latest addition will be on exhibit beginning this weekend.
