Who Gnu?

All About Baby: There's a baby boom for wildebeests. That's right, I said it. Exactly four have been born at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park in the last few months. Seen here galavanting next to her mother across the African Plains exhibit, is one of them -- a white-bearded gnu calf that was standing and running with the herd within minutes of being born. Typically, wildebeest calves weigh approximately 40 lbs. at birth and up to a hefty 260 to 600 pounds once they fill out their furry frames.
