It's a girl! Disney's Animal Kingdom welcomes baby giraffe

The giraffe herd at Disney's Animal Kingdom just got an adorable addition.

On Tuesday, a baby female Masai giraffe was born backstage at the theme park.

"Weighing in at 156 pounds, she is healthy, actively nursing and was strong and feisty during her neonatal exam," Disney Parks Blog wrote in an update.

The park says that the girl, who has yet-to-be-named, is forming a close bond with her mama, Mara.

The pair will continue to stay backstage until the baby meets all of her developmental milestones. 

"We expect her to join the herd on the savanna in the coming weeks."
