Jafari and Cupid, two giraffes at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, just had a baby on January 27, measuring 6' 2" and weighing 176 pounds.

According to a news release by the park, Cupid and her newborn are currently being held out of view of the public so staff can ensure that the calf is nursing and growing.

They will rejoin the 17 other giraffes on Busch Garden's Serengeti Plain in about three months.
