CINCINNATI, Ohio (AP) – The Cincinnati Zoo says its new baby giraffe now has a name.
The male calf was born Nov. 23 and has been named Theo. Zoo leaders say they picked that name because it means “divine gift.”
Theo was sired by Kimba, a 12-year-old male giraffe who died last month of complications after surgery on his hooves.
Officials say he is the 17th giraffe born at the zoo.Grab the FREE WDTN News App from the Apple Store or Google play. Stay up to date with all the local news, weather and sports as well as live newscasts and events as they happen.
