    Approximately 12:43 pm, our calf made its big “splash” into the world! Dr. Tim quickly identified we had welcomed a baby boy!

    He's so active, lol. Running all the time. Very cute. I can't stand the YouTube chat this year tho. Constant complaining and moaning, blah. Anyway, we missed the birth live by three minutes yesterday, lol! We'd been watching in the car and baby G was sticking out the same amount the whole time (hooves). In the time it took for us to park and walk inside and wash our hands, he came rolling out! :D Haha. Quick scroll back and we saw it. :) I'm surprised he was up so quickly!

    We are happy to report, the new calf has had a strong and adventurous first couple days of life!

    The little guy is up 5 lbs from yesterday! To us, this means mom is producing milk and baby is nursing successfully!

    His ossicones (black hair tufts at this time) have stood up on his head!

    The calf has been observed by Giraffe Cam viewers, stretching those legs in full stride, galloping around mom, April! She certainly has her hooves full with this one!

    In case anyone else was curious, at birth, Scooter weighed 129 pounds and stood 5 feet 9 inches tall. I thought Scooter looked bigger at birth and was surprised at this.

    How big is April the Giraffe's baby? Height and weight revealed

    I have noticed that also. It seems he is talking to his dad Oliver at times. Lots of bonding going on.

    I thought the other day it looked like April was kissing her baby on the lips. So Sweet!

    We have a name!

    Azizi (Ah-ZEE-ZEE) "Azi" "Az"


    Fans cast their votes in an online naming contest, narrowing the options down to a pool of 20 names. Fans ultimately picked ‘Keeper’s Choice’, passing the big decision to the beloved giraffe care team. The team chose to honor one of the top 20 name selections voted on by our fans.

    Azizi, having a few origins, has meanings that truly identify with the personality of the young male giraffe. Precious, powerful, beloved, and “the mighty one” are descriptive of our independent calf, that will someday grow to a possible eighteen feet and weigh over 2,000 pounds. Other top contenders included Finnegan, Apollo, and Zumi.
