ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — The Seneca Park Zoo’s baby Masai giraffe met his father, Parker for the first time and it was just as precious as it sounds.

The still-unnamed boy was born on April 29 to Parker and Iggy. The zoo cautioned that all giraffe births are high-risk, so the next few days and weeks were critical.

The video of the calf meeting his father was released Friday, and shows the two nuzzling, almost like a kiss. Mother Iggy was there to watch over her new baby.

Last week, the zoo released a video of the calf running around the zoo’s indoor giraffe enclosure.
