Houston Zoo names newborn giraffe ‘baby Yao Ming’

Yao Ming used to play for the Houston Rockets. Yao Ming is tall. Naturally, that led to the Houston Zoo naming a newborn giraffe after him.

Baby Yao Ming is 6 feet tall, a full 18 inches shorter than his namesake. Bet all the other giraffes make fun of him.

Also, baby Yao Ming appears to be 95% neck, 5% torso. He’s the Chris Bosh of giraffes.
