The Houston Zoo shows off its adorable new baby giraffe

Watch 2-week-old Kamili try to figure out how her legs work VIDEO

The 10th and newest member of the Houston Zoo’s giraffe herd is a lot smaller than the other giraffes, making her, by definition, adorable.

Already 6 feet tall and 132 pounds when she was born at the beginning of August, Kamili made her official debut last Friday. As giraffe senior keep Kim Siegl rightly states, “Babies are always cute to watch” — especially when they’re still figuring out how their legs work. 

So watch away (just remember to keep your distance):
