CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WAFF) - A new antelope came to town at the Chattanooga Zoo! The Zoo proudly announced the arrival of a baby Blue Duiker on Tuesday.

According to the Chattanooga Zoo, their female Blue Duiker, Poppy, had given birth to her long-awaited baby during the night of May 25. After exams, the zoo says the calf’s results came back well.

While the baby Blue Duiker has not been given a name, it has stolen the hearts of many. Blue Duikers are a tiny species of antelope that are found in Africa. Fully grown Blue Duikers weigh around 10-20 pounds. But their babies only weigh a pound.

Welcome to the world, baby Blue Duiker!
