Perth Zoo has announced the arrival of a baby giraffe with an adorable video of mum and bub.

The female giraffe, standing 180 centimetres tall and weighing 55 kilograms, was born to mum Kitoto just before midday on Friday after two-and-a-half hours in labour.

“Both mum and bub are doing well and were bonding behind the scenes in the giraffe nursery,” Perth Zoo said.
