The San Francisco Zoo showed their newest member on Wednesday.

The new female baby giraffe was born on Monday, standing six feet tall and weighing 128 pounds.

One zoo worker says she's actually smaller than other giraffes born at the zoo and they consider her their little princess.

She's even nursing on her own, which means less work for zoo staff.

Long-time zoo supporter Bernard Osher and his wife Barbro will choose the baby's name.
