April the giraffe’s baby finally has a name.
The baby giraffe’s name is Tajiri, and it was announced Monday on “Good Morning America.”
The 15-year-old giraffe delivered her calf on April 15th in an enclosed pen at the zoo in Harpursville, a rural upstate village about 130 miles northwest of New York City.
The zoo held a contest to pick Tajiri’s name. It means hope in Swahili, according to Animal Adventure Park owner Jordan Patch.
At least 1.2 million people watched April give birth at the Adventure Park's YouTube stream.
Tajiri is April's fourth calf. The proud papa is a 5-year-old giraffe named Oliver.
The privately owned zoo began livestreaming from April's enclosure in February.
People around the world tuned in daily.
April has her own website and even an apparel line.
