He's a big baby and getting bigger.

Zoo keepers in Houston say their newest giraffe gained six pounds over the weekend.

The calf was born Friday and was five-foot-nine at birth.

Officials at the Houston Zoo say the calf is being bottle-fed diluted goat's milk.

Zoo spokesman Brian Hill says their little giraffe has a great appetite and "is just as cute as he can be."

No decision yet on a name.
