SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A baby giraffe was born at the San Diego Zoo just in time for the first annual World Giraffe Day.

The male calf is a four-day old Masai giraffe standing 6 feet, 2 inches and weighing in at 146 pounds.

World Giraffe Day is this Saturday, and will be observed worldwide to raise awareness about the challenges giraffes face.

Among the activities at the zoo is an open house at the giraffe barn where guests can go behind the scenes and meet the keepers.
