The 200th giraffe calf in Cheyenne Mountain Zoo’s history was born on Monday, June 4, 2018 at 8:20 p.m. MDT. A baby girl to mother, Muziki!

On behalf of Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, we want to thank you for your interest in participating in our #200GiraffeCalf name voting! Due to her recent health events, we decided to go ahead and give our newest giraffe herd member a name. We looked at the two most popular names, Mia and Penny, and let the calf decide for herself since our group was split. We played Mamma Mia and Penny Lane for her, and it looks like our girl’s a Beatles fan! We are pleased to introduce Penny!
