Name Selected For New-Born Giraffe

(Minot, ND) — The name for a new-born giraffe at the Roosevelt Park Zoo in Minot has been chosen. The calf was born earlier this month, and the name ‘Jabari’, meaning “brave one” in Swahili, has been selected for the zoo’s newest arrival. Prior to the name selection, the zoo had narrowed the name down to either that or ‘Mahari’. A poll was posted on Facebook, and the people chose ‘Jabari.’
