Royal baby, who?
The Dallas Zoo’s newest addition is here: Katie the reticulated giraffe—not to be confused with the expectant Kate Middleton—gave birth on Friday. (On the count of three: one, two, three … awww!)
The zoo teamed up with Animal Planet to bring viewers 24/7 coverage via live cam.
Watch the live feed below to see/aww over the calf, whose sex is unknown. Animal Planet will also air a one-hour special, Giraffe Birth Live, Saturday night at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
Katie is one of about 4,700 of her kind, down from an estimated 31,000 in 1998, according to the Giraffe Conservation Foundation. That’s all the more reason to get excited about her little one, in addition to the wardrobe full of giraffe onesies we’re sure Katie stocked up on.
