SANTA BARBARA, Calif. (AP) — The public is getting its first glimpse of a baby Masai giraffe born over the weekend at the Santa Barbara Zoo.

The zoo posted online video Monday of the still-unnamed calf bonding with its mother, Audrey, behind the scenes in their barn.

The calf, born Saturday, is already 191 pounds and over 6 feet tall.

There’s no word on when the newborn will be introduced into the giraffe exhibit for viewing by zoo visitors.

The Ventura County Star newspaper reports that it’s the fourth birth for Audrey at the zoo. Her last calf, Buttercup, was born in November 2014.

The zoo’s other female giraffe, Betty Lou, is in her third pregnancy and is expected to give birth in July.
