At just four weeks old, Whipsnade Zoo in Bedfordshire's newest arrival is already standing tall - at almost six feet! The reticulated giraffe, a baby girl, took her first wobbly steps an hour after birth. She will be named by visitors to the zoo.
Over the next few weeks she will be introduced to the rest of the herd at Whipsnade including her one year old half brother Jengo.
