This little girl was born two weeks ago at Dublin Zoo, the fourth calf to be born there in two years. She’s just under one metre in height, and weighs 70kg.

Her birth was filmed as part of The Zoo documentary series on RTÉ, and cameras later caught the calf taking her first steps:

The clip has been shared thousands of times on Facebook, and people are loving this little insight into the life of the herd.

Go baby go!
