On Saturday, the internet became obsessed with April, a giraffe whose pregnancy was live-streamed to millions of viewers online.

But a day earlier, the Houston Zoo’s newly born calf, a 6 foot 3 inch female made her first public appearance.

The Houston Zoo recently released a short video showcasing the yet-to-be-named giraffe’s debut to the public.
