Meet Como Zoo’s newest giraffe named by Minnesotans
Meet Ivy — the newest baby giraffe at Como Zoo.
Seven-year-old giraffe Zinnia gave birth to the 6-foot, 132-pound, female baby giraffe on Nov. 6 at the zoo.
The mother and baby were given some time to bond before zoo officials asked people to vote for the baby’s name from three options: Dahlia, Aster and Ivy.
Zinnia has also given birth to two other calves, and the arrival of the latest one boosts the zoo’s herd to four: Zinnia, Clover, Skeeter and baby Ivy.
