The Cincinnati Zoo's one-month-old baby giraffe made her outdoor public debut on Thursday.

Zuri, along with her mom, Tessa, and dad, Kimba, will be in their outdoor yard at Giraffe Ridge for the public to see.

After successful introductions this week in their indoor exhibit, the small family is now ready to venture outside together, for the first time. Tessa and Kimba will be exploring the outdoor yard of Giraffe Ridge with Zuri by their side.

Visitors can now see the family during Zoo Babies (weather permitting), which runs through May 31, and will feature an exciting lineup of baby animals in every shape and size.
