ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - The Rio Grande Zoo is looking for help in naming its newest giraffe calf.
Zookeepers have narrowed down the list of names to four - Abiquiu or Abi for short, Gisele, Mari and Nancy. Voting takes place on the ABQ BioPark's Facebook page.
The female calf was born April 20, weighing in at 120 pounds and measuring almost 6 feet tall.
The zoo says it also plans to hold a naming contest for a baby orangutan.
