The Animal Adventure Park shared a Facebook update and announced the name had been selected. The live giraffe cam became a viral sensation after going live on Feb 10. Park owner Jordan Patch announced a limited viewing schedule as the park officially reopens for its fifth season on May 13, 2017. Here is the latest update as shared by the Animal Adventure Park.
The live giraffe cam returns every Tuesday between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. ET. Don’t miss it!
Charisse Van Horn (aka TV Witch) first reported on April the giraffe after finding the video on YouTube and contacting Jordan Patch. This by far has been the most enjoyable story she has written about.
