Houston Zoo names newborn giraffe ‘baby Yao Ming’

A. Isaac Senior Editor

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.
