INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The Indianapolis Zoo is asking for help naming their newest addition.
The zoo launched a poll on Facebook to help choose a name for their new giraffe calf. Kita, 3, gave birth to the baby boy earlier this month. The giraffe calf is 6-feet tall, 137-pounds.
The zoo has narrowed it down to three choices:
- Kendi, an African name that means “loved one.”
- Tumaini, which is a Swahili word meaning “hope.”
- Zane, an African name that means “noble.”
The poll runs through Dec. 7.
The new arrival is the Indianapolis Zoo’s fifth giraffe.
