It's not a human baby this time. It's a baby giraffe, born to mother "Chae" and father "Khaen" at the Khon Kaen Zoo.

The baby is strong and healthy, says zoo director Thanachon Kensing.

The zoo now has three male and two female giraffes and local children like them very much.

Other African wildlife at the zoo include two zebras, six kudus and 13 ostriches.

The zoo is in Khao Suan Kwang district and to see the giraffes and other African animals you will need to take the skywalk.
