TULSA -- Ohe, a young giraffe at the Tulsa Zoo, appears to be enjoying his new home.

The zoo posted a video on Facebook on Friday morning of the giraffe checking out the main yard for the first time.

Officials said the staff baby-proofed the exhibit, and then let Ohe run wild.

Watch below:

The giraffe was born on July 22 to mom Lexi and dad Hekaya. The name is Osage for 'to win,' the zoo said.
