Columbia, SC (WLTX) -- The newest addition to The Riverbanks Zoo crew had a birth weight of nearly one hundred pounds.

"Winston" was introduced Tuesday in a press release from the Zoo, saying he was born to parents Sharon and Charlie about six weeks ago.

Once Winston is fully grown he'll be up to 18 feet tall and weigh in at over one ton.

He has two older siblings born previously to Sharon and Charlie: older brother Lewis is now in residence at Bush Gardens in Tampa, and Winston's older sister Isabella still remains at Riverbanks.

Visitors can now see Winston along with Riverbanks' entire giraffe heard in the Zoo's African Savanna exhibit.
