National News

CINCINNATI, Ohio (AP) – The Cincinnati Zoo says its new baby giraffe now has a name.

The male calf was born on Nov. 23 and has been named Theo.

Theo was sired by Kimba, a 12-year-old male giraffe who died last month of complications after surgery on his hooves.

Officials say he is the 17th giraffe born at the zoo.
