    Keepers say this calf is a little guy, just 5-foot-3 inches tall. He was measured during his first exam. The health baby boy is sticking close to mom and seems to have a good temperament.

    He’ll be on exhibit in the maternity yard for a few days before being introduced to the rest of the herd later this week.
