There's a new addition to the safari at New Jersey's Six Flags Great Adventure theme park.
A female reticulated giraffe was born at the park on Oct. 11.
The park says Mika stood within an hour of her birth and measured 5 feet 10 inches tall, a little shorter than the average 6 feet for newborns.
The calf was the first for her mother, Noel. Noel is 13 and her mother, Georgia, has been one of the safari's most beloved residents since 1993, according to the zoo.
The park says Mika ventured outside the barn for the first time last Tuesday. Customers will be able to see her at the safari this weekend.
Reticulated giraffes like Mika, also known as Somali giraffes, are native to northeastern Kenya, southern Ethiopia and Somalia. They have a unique coat pattern featuring red-brown polygonal patches divided by thin white lines.
Full-grown female giraffes stand approximately 16 feet tall and weigh about 1,800 lbs.
