The family of giraffes at the Philadelphia zoo—mom Stella, dad Gus, and older sister Abigail—just grew to include one new member. On June 10, Stella, Gus, and the Philadelphia Zoo welcomed a new baby giraffe. 

Abigail, Abby for short, is almost eight years old: she was born July 17, 2010, also at the Philadelphia Zoo. Mom Stella and Dad Gus were born in Cape May and Texas, respectively. 

Standing 5 ft 7 inches tall at his birth, Beau will likely reach about 18 feet as he grows. So if you want to see this beautiful boy grow up, head over to the zoo: it's close to campus and likely more interesting than the Netflix you were about to watch. 



Grab your tickets to see Beau and the other animals at the Philadelphia Zoo here. Tickets are $24.95. 

Address: 3400 W Girard Ave, Philadelphia, PA, 19104

Hours: Summer hours are 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m, every day of the week.
