The new giraffe was born on May 2, 2022, at the Seneca Park Zoo, near Rochester, New York. According to the Seneca Park Zoo's Facebook page, Superintendent Steve Lacy, “Thank you to the veterinary & animal care staff at the Seneca Park Zoo who are working tirelessly to ensure the best outcome for Iggy and her calf. The calf is very active, and mom is doing great!"

So, Iggy's new offspring is a boy, does he have a name yet?

At the time of this writing, there isn't a name. The Mom and the calf are spending some time getting to know one another and resting. These giraffes are both Masai giraffes, which is one of the nine subspecies of giraffes, hailing originally from East Africa. According to the GiraffeConservation.org, this type of giraffe is darker in color and has larger patches than other types of giraffes. They are currently listed as endangered.
