The Fort Worth Zoo has named its new baby giraffe 'Nakuru' in homage to Lake Nakuru National Park in the east Africa nation of Kenya where this species of giraffe is found. 

The male giraffe was born on June 15th and the Zoo held an online vote to choose a name.

The voting closed yesterday and the zoo's Facebook page says "Nakuru" edged out Alfalfa by a few hundred votes.
