LIMESTONE, TN (WJHL)- Brights Zoo in Limestone recently welcomed a new giraffe.
Zoo officials said their giraffe named Valerie gave birth to a male calf just a few weeks ago.
The new giraffe, named Alf, was born at 6 feet tall, weighing 145 pounds.
In an update on Facebook this weekend, they said Alf now weighs more than 161 pounds.
Zoo officials said it will be a while before Alf goes on display with the other giraffes, but that he is doing well and regularly taking his bottles.
