BioPark announces new baby giraffe’s name


ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The new baby giraffe at the zoo now has a name.

It’s “Jambazi” which is Swahili for “Bandit.”

The BioPark says it’s the perfect name for him because he steals everyone’s heart when they look at him.

Jambazi was born to mom, June, earlier this month.

Camilla, another giraffe at the zoo, is also pregnant and is expected to give birth anytime from now through October. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
