Baby giraffe born at Busch Gardens

- There is a new, adorable addition to Busch Gardens Tampa Bay.

The theme park welcomed a giraffe calf named "Patty," born on the eve of St. Patrick's Day.

The park says the not-so-little baby was five-feet five inches tall and weighs in at 105 pounds.

She is the fourth giraffe calf to be born at Busch Gardens in the last four months, according to the park.

She, along with her mother, "Bititi," will be on the Serengeti plain for everyone to see very soon.

Busch Gardens participates with zoos and aquariums across the country in the Species Survival Plan, which helps threatened or endangered species.
