HARPURSVILLE, N.Y. (CBS4) – On the final day of their summer season, the Animal Adventure Park updated their fans on how Tajiri the giraffe is doing.
According to the park’s Facebook page, Taj “is now standing just over 9′ tall and well over 475-500 lbs.”
Pictured next to him in the post is his mother April, a full-grown adult giraffe.
The park gained international fame with April the giraffe, as millions watched and waited for her to give birth on a live stream.
Park owner Jordan Patch thanked CBS Denver fans for helping make the live feed go viral.
Tajiri’s name means Hope or Confidence in Swahili.
