Great Plains Zoo's Giraffe To Be Named Gerald

November 18, 2012, 10:00 AM

Great Plains Zoo's Giraffe To Be Named Gerald
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

The Great Plains Zoo says its new baby giraffe will be named Gerald.

In September, the Sioux Falls zoo's 13-year-old giraffe Libby gave birth to a 6-foot-tall male calf weighing 147 pounds.

The zoo held a naming contest that began with 61 submitted names but was later whittled down to two for a runoff. Some 1,600 votes were cast.

The winning name was submitted by 5-year-old Katie Palmer and 3-year-old Addie Palmer of Rapid City in honor of their grandfather. For their effort, Katie and Addie had an opportunity to meet a giraffe up-close and talk to the zookeepers.

The $1,700 raised from the contest will benefit the animals at the zoo.
