Baringo Giraffe at the Bronx Zoo
At birth, this calf was already six feet tall—tall enough to fit in on a WNBA roster (though at just 100 pounds, she might get pushed around in the paint). By the time she grows up, she could be 16 feet tall and tip the scales at 2,600 pounds. You can visit her at the African Plains exhibit.
