Welcome to the world: The newest reticulated giraffe at the Buffalo Zoo, an 11-day-old baby boy, with his mother, Agnes, gets his introduction to the outside world at a preview for the media on Wednesday.

At right, the youngster gets a tender nuzzle from his aunt, Jennie. Another photo on Page B1.
