MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The Memphis Zoo has officially announced the birth of a baby giraffe.

On Monday, 7-year-old Akili had a baby boy.

Akili reportedly did not “provide appropriate maternal behavior” forcing zoo keepers to step in a raise the infant.

The zoo said this is not unusual, especially since Akili is a first-time mom.

The baby giraffe is named Bogey.
