Blank Park Zoo recently announced the birth of a male giraffe calf on Monday, January 18.

Just 36 hours after birth, keepers and veterinary staff performed a neonatal exam and determined the calf’s height is six feet and weight is 125 lbs. The calf’s mother, Skye, is a six year-old giraffe, who has lived at Blank Park Zoo since 2015. This is her first calf. Jakobi, the father, is 15 years-old and has previously sired several calves.

Voting has closed. Blank Park Zoo announced the name of the giraffe calf, Raza (meaning hope), on February 3.
