    Default Reticulated giraffe calf sticks close to his mother at Frankfurt Zoo


    At Germany's Frankfurt Zoo, a male reticulated giraffe calf named Tebogo made his public debut last week. His name translates to "thankful" in the Tswana language.
    Tebogo, who was born to mother Monique without human help and discovered by keepers on the morning of Dec. 9, is the 16th reticulated giraffe to be born at the zoo. Monique is the mother of nearly half of those calves -- prior to Tebogo, she had given birth to four sons and two daughters.
    Tebogo was considered an especially large giraffe calf, according to zoo staff -- at birth, he already weighed more than 180 pounds. He won't be considered fully grown until he's about 3 years old.
    See more photos of Tebogo and his mother after the jump!
