Animal Adventure’s newest giraffe finally has a name.

Tajiri’s new female companion has been named Johari.

Johari is a Swahili word meaning jewel.

The 14 year-old giraffe was welcomed to the park in Harpursville in January.

Following the announcement of her arrival on Valentine’s Day, fans from around the world were able to cast their votes, selecting Johari as her name after two rounds of popular votes. 

Meanwhile, Tajiri’s mother April is expected to give birth to her latest calf sometime in the next month or so.
