Australia Zoo is on the lookout for a name for one of our gorgeous giraffes, and we need your help!
The beautiful female giraffe arrived at Australia Zoo in November 2009, and has settled in to her new home wonderfully. She is now two years old and already weighs over 520kg.
Arriving at the Zoo as a shy and quiet giraffe, our girl has become a confident socialite. She loves interacting with people and has taken a particular liking to our handsome male giraffe, Forest. The two are inseparable! We have high hopes that love will blossom, and the pitter-patter of tiny hooves will be heard in the future. But first- we need a name for this tall beauty.
In a Queensland first, we recently launched our Giant Giraffe Encounters, giving guests the chance to meet our three magnificent giraffes. The person who submits the perfect name for our young girl will win the opportunity to meet her, and her two giraffe friends, Forrest and Penny. Plus, all entrants will go in the draw to win one of five family passes to visit the Zoo and meet our tallest residents!
With only a week to think of the perfect name - it's time to get crackin'! Check out our Amazing Animal profiles for inspiration - we have stacks of animals here, including Graham, Monty and Meg!
The winning name will be selected by Terri, Bindi and Robert Irwin and announced on May 15. Entries close May 8.
Note: Transport to Australia Zoo is NOT included in the prize.
