Margaret Abigail Bronx Zoo

Margaret Abigail is a baby giraffe at the Bronx Zoo. The zoo says Margaret was nearly six-feet tall when she was born. She was able to walk within minutes of being born. Margaret is sticking close to her very tall mother in this "Baby Boom" video from WCS Media. She does go for one cute little run by herself. David Powell, Assistant Curator of Mammals for the Bronx Zoo, says giraffes will grow another six feet in two years so Margaret will be about twelve feet tall in May 2011. Take a look:
