This week in adorable:

A baby giraffe debuted today at the Bronx Zoo: James Marjani stands 6 feet tall and weighs about 100 pounds. This is the first giraffe calf born at the zoo in over two years.

James Marjani joins newborn lamb Irene, who made her way into the world just before the eponymous hurricane hit, as well as this tiny monkey who was also born last month.

Baby giraffes start growing in the first few hours of their life and can reach a whopping seventeen feet in height.

Watch the little critter in his new home, then overdose on animal cuteness here.
