The Fort Worth Zoo welcomed a new baby giraffe on July 29 and is sharing some of the first images of mom and baby together.

Tatu, the third calf of mother giraffe Kala, weighed 165 pounds and measured 6 feet tall at birth. According to the zoo, when Tatu reaches full size, she'll be a hefty 2,600 pounds and measure around 15 feet tall.

The zoo has housed giraffes since 1952 and now has a herd of four females and one male in the African Savannah portion of the zoo.
