I have been enthralled by the saga of April the Giraffe. I had watched the webcam for hours and waited since February for her to have her baby at the Animal Adventure Park. They do give us limited access now on their webcam on Tuesdays from 4-8p. I still feel like it's not enough. Then after she had the calf, the park ran a contest to name the baby. Well, finally the day has come where we find out which name got the most votes.

Here were the top ten names that were voted on: (in alphabetical order)

  1. Allysa's Choice
  2. Apollo
  3. Geoffrey
  4. Gio
  5. Harpur
  6. Noah
  7. Ollie
  8. Patch
  9. Patches
  10. Unity

The winning name is Allysa's Choice so she chose Tajari which means hope and confidence. I have to admit that I love it! I really wasn't invested in what the name would be, but I am pleased with what won.

I have to admit that I was more addicted to the webcam and I am still happy that I can get my fix every Tuesday!

Welcome baby Tajari!
