We Need an Irish Name for our Baby Giraffe

The female calf was born on September 21st to mother Sapphire who carried the new arrival for an incredible 15 months and like all giraffe mothers gave birth to her baby whilst standing.
The new calf is the youngest of the herd of 12 Rothschild giraffe at Fota Wildlife Park, which are one of nine races of giraffe found in Africa

We are now looking for you to name the calf but there is a catch in that it needs to follow tradition and be an Irish name.

The baby is the 64th giraffe born in Fota Wildlife Park since the park started breeding them in the early 1980s. Each of the 64 calves were given an Irish name as a way to show that they were born in Cork, most of them have ended up in zoos and parks in Australia, Belgium, England, Scotland and in both Belfast Zoo and Dublin Zoo.
We will also be awarding the person with the winning Irish name a fantastic prize of a VIP Family Experience where they will get the opportunity to feed a giraffe and see what happens behind the scenes at Fota.

Our little giraffe calf is doing really well and was introduced to 'Aunty' Rukiya yesterday! #aucklandzoo #auckland #newzealand #giraffe #giraffecalf

Look at the Easter surprise we received last night: a baby giraffe! Audrey gave birth to a Masai giraffe calf at 9:28 p.m. on Saturday night here at the Santa Barbara Zoo. We have yet to determine the sex of this baby, but can assure you all that both calf and mother are doing well. Welcome little one! #santabarbarazoo #babygiraffe #masaigiraffe #giraffecalf

Yesterday, Willow met another member of her herd for the first time! Here she's groomed by our oldest female, Kesi. We're pretty sure they are going to get along 💋. #giraffe #babyanimal #giraffecalf #babyfirst #MarylandZoo

#HappyMothersDay to mothers of all walks of life out there!

My amazing mother has been asking for a drawing of a giraffe with its calf for quite some time now, so I thought I would do one for her as a Mother's Day gift. :) Personally, I am extremely proud of this. The practice pen sketch I did for it earlier yesterday was pretty solid by my standards - a lot better than I expected - so I was almost considering just giving her that. But no, only the best for Mom! I needed to do a better version, and I am so glad I did, because this is honestly one of my favorite pieces I've ever done. I hope she likes it! (It took me at least 5 hours, if anyone's curious.) Hope you all enjoy your Mother's Day!
