As of Friday morning, the footage had raked in more than 9,500 views on Instagram and 6,800 views on Facebook.

Frankie was born June 16 to mother Phoebe, 33, WLWT reported. He was named by an anonymous donor family who wanted to pay tribute to their late mother, Frances, according to the news outlet.

The calf now weighs more than 905 pounds, the zoo said earlier this week.
