Name suggestions for the baby giraffe will be accepted on the Zoo’s Facebook page and via tweets to @CincinnatiZoo through end of day Wednesday, October 17. On Thursday, October 18, the Zoo will post the top three names, chosen by Zoo staff, on its Facebook page. There, people can vote for their favorite and the winning name will be announced Friday.
The female giraffe, born Friday, October 12, is doing well and is spending this time bonding with her mom, “Tessa” and her dad, “Kimba” in their indoor stall at Giraffe Ridge. Zoo visitors can view the family through windows on the Giraffe Ridge deck.
