Limestone, TN – On July 31, an extremely rare reticulated giraffe calf was born at a Tennessee zoo. The calf is so rare that she is believed to be the only one ON EARTH to be born without the distinct patterns for which giraffes are known.
The unusual calf is solid brown and experts believe that she is one of a kind. Brights Zoo said:
“Giraffe experts believe she is the only solid-coloured reticulated giraffe living anywhere on the planet,”
The zoo hopes to give the unique calf a special name and a contest between now and Sept. 4 is being held in order to allow the public to take part in the important decision. The zoo has outlined the four choices:
We have 4 names to choose from, The names and their meanings are below:
1. Kipekee – Unique
2. Firali – Unusual or Extradonary
3. Shakiri – She is most beautiful
4. Jamella – One of great beauty
