ST. PAUL, Minn. (FOX 9) - The votes are in for the name of Como Zoo’s newest giraffe.
A giraffe was born on Nov. 6 at 8:09 p.m. at Como Zoo, but was still without a name. Last week, fans voted online for one of three names: Dahlia, Aster and Ivy.
More than 17,000 votes were cast and Ivy came out on top with 45% of the votes. Dahlia followed closely behind with 40% and Aster finished in third with 15% of the votes.
At birth, Ivy weighed 132 pounds and was 6 feet tall. She is the third calf born to 7-year-old Zinnia as part of the Species Survival Plan.
Ivy joins other giraffes Zinnia, Clover and Skeeter at the Como Park Zoo and Conservatory.
