Giraffe calf makes her debut at Kansas City Zoo


KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – A baby giraffe named Dixie has made her debut at the Kansas City Zoo.

The Kansas City Star reports that the 6-foot-tall calf and her mother, Lizzie, had not been on display until Wednesday. Dixie weighed more than 100 pounds when she was born in February. She was in good health but zoo officials waited for warmer weather before allowing her in the outside enclosure.

Temperatures Wednesday in the Kansas City area hit 80 degrees.
