KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

The giraffe herd at the Kansas City Zoo just grew by four hooves.

On Friday, mom Lizzie gave birth to a baby giraffe. The calf weighed in at 105 pounds and already stands 5-feet tall.

A neo-natal exam performed Monday morning showed that the calf is in good health and it's a girl.

"Right now, she is bonding with her mom behind the scenes and won’t be on exhibit until temperatures permit," the zoo said.
