The newest member of the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo giraffe family was born on July 11th and named Trevor. Giraffes give birth standing up, so it’s lucky Trevor was about 6 feet tall when he was born. Otherwise it would have been a pretty a long drop into the world.

Trevor is calf number eight for long-time Cleveland Zoo resident Lindi. At almost 26 years-old Lindi is pretty special – she’s still giving birth long after her species’ average life span of 15-20 years.

In honor of Lindi and Trevor, here some adorable baby giraffe pics! Prepare to Aww…
