Giraffe lovers are being offered a tall opportunity.
Safari West, the popular safari and wildlife park in Santa Rosa, welcomed a new member of its family on Oct. 6: a 117-pound bouncing, teetering baby giraffe. The bundle of legs is the son of mother Nikki and father Kubwa.
The park said in a press release Nikki and Kubwa still haven’t decided on a name, at least one that humans can understand. So the park is leaving it up to the public.
Staff members have come up with six possibilities on which to vote: Deebo, Buster, Jarifi, Jimmy G, Curry and MattyVino.
The little big guy’s new human name will be announced just in time for baby’s first Christmas (that’s a stocking Santa may need some help filling). Go to https://www.safariwest.com/2021/11/help-us-name-that-baby-giraffe/ to vote by midnight Tuesday.
