MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WTHR) - There's an adorable new resident at The Memphis Zoo.

Wendy, an 8-year-old giraffe, delivered a calf Saturday morning.

We're told the baby set a record. It was on its feet in about 25 minutes.

A neonatal test is pending. It will reveal the calf's gender. They'll wait for that information before choosing a name for the new arrival.

Officials are keeping an eye on Wendy and baby in a barn on zoo property, and plan to introduce baby to visitors next week.
