The Greenville Zoo in South Carolina is asking for help naming their newborn female calf, born to their proud mom giraffe, Autumn. The 6-foot, 2-inch, 157 pound baby was born on January 31, 2018.

The zoo posted about the competition on Facebook on Monday, February 5. To submit a name for the newborn, fill out the form on the Greenville Zoo website.

Submissions will be taken through Thursday, February 8 at noon, Eastern standard time. The zoo will announce the winner at a news conference Friday, at 10:00 a.m.

At the moment, the zoo is closed for routine maintenance, but will open again to the public on Saturday, February 10, so everyone can marvel at the latest “little” addition -- hopefully with an adorable, new name.

In the meantime, you can keep up to date on the happy giraffe family by watching the Greenville Zoo’s giraffe live stream on its website.
