TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Busch Gardens Tampa is celebrating the births of three giraffes and an anteater.

The theme park announced this week that the reticulated giraffes were born March 12, 14 and 18 to three different mothers. Two of the babies were female, while the third was male. The girls stood around 5 feet 6 inches and weighed more than 100 pounds at birth. The boy was more than 6 feet tall and weighed nearly 150 pounds. All three giraffes will on display in the coming weeks.

The park also says that a tamanduas, commonly known as a lesser anteater, was born April 13. The mother and pup remain behind-the-scenes with Busch Gardens' animal care team.
