Zoo’s baby giraffe named Lulu

July 21st, 2017 · No Comments

Woodland Park Zoo’s new baby giraffe has been named Lulu, which means “pearl” in Swahili.

Lulu was born last month to mother Tufani and father Dave. She was 5 foot 9 inches at birth and is already 7 feet tall.

She was named by Al Buckingham, who won the opportunity by making a donation at the zoo’s Jungle Party fundraiser, which raised more than $1.5 million total (the zoo did not specify the amount of Buckingham’s donation).
