Baby giraffes have been drawing crowds to two US zoos.

Houston Zoo's newest arrival Kamili - which means "perfect" in Swahili - made her debut on Friday.

She is a mere six feet (1.8m) tall, but giraffes are the tallest living land animals and can reach 19 feet (5.8m).

Meanwhile Gowon - Masai for "rain maker" - was released into the San Diego Zoo Safari Park after he had been kept in a protected area.
