Baby Giraffe born at Woodland Park Zoo
Here's how the staff described the exam: "Weighing the calf was an interesting exercise. First, we placed a towel over his head to eliminate distractions and keep him calm during the exam. Then four keepers walked onto the scale with the calf to help him stay in place long enough to get an accurate measurement. Subtract the combined weight of the keepers, and you've got a weight for the calf—144 pounds!" (Photo by: Ryan Hawk/Woodland Park Zoo)
