Your morning adorable: Rothschild giraffe calf reaches for a snack at the Berlin Zoo
It's hard to top the cuteness of a gangly giraffe calf.

Egon is a Rothschild giraffe, one of the rarest of the giraffe subspecies. Rothschild giraffes (also known as Ugandan giraffes or Baringo giraffes) are considered endangered, with fewer than 2,500 thought to remain in the wild -- possibly far fewer.
