NORFOLK, Va. -

There's a new resident now at the Virginia Zoo in Norfolk. 

The zoo welcomed a baby giraffe on June 6, 2013. At birth, the calf weighed in at 150 pounds and measured 6'4 in height. 

The calf has been named Paul.

Paul has been given a preliminary check-up by the zoo's veterinarian and appears to be very healthy. 

Paul and his mother can be viewed by zoo visitors at the indoor giraffe exhibit.
