The as-of-yet-unnamed giraffe (pictured above) is cute. That's no surprise. But would you believe she was born already taller than a good proportion of humanity? According to the zoo, she entered the world 5-feet-8-inches tall and 130 pounds.

And if you think human pregnancies are long, consider that giraffe gestation lasts for up to 15 months.

The baby is the fourth giraffe at Como Zoo, joining her parents and one other. She's scheduled to make her public debut this coming Sunday.
