Franklin Park holds naming contest for newborn giraffe

The Franklin Park Zoo is holding a naming contest for a baby giraffe born late last month, the zoo announced Wednesday.

The female giraffe, born Nov. 27, stands taller than many of those at the zoo caring for her, at a height of 6 feet 5 inches, and she weighs 165 pounds, the zoo said. She learned to stand just an hour after birth.
