Two not-so-small bundles of joy arrived at Busch Gardens earlier this summer.  Now, the two baby giraffes are out in the park for public viewing.

Cupid, a 15 year-old giraffe, welcomed her seventh calf back on June 11, park officials said.  The male calf weighed 188 pounds and was more than 6 feet tall.  Tesa, an 18-year-old giraffe, welcomed her sixth calf on June 19 -- a female weighing 145 pounds and standing 5-foot-8. 

The baby reticulated giraffes are now on the Serengeti Plain part of the park. The best view is from the Serengeti train or the Edge of Africa area.  Officials also say you can reserve a spot on the Serengeti Safari tour to get up close with giraffes the other animals on the plain.
