The Cleveland Metroparks Zoo is celebrating the birth of its new baby boy giraffe, Jabari, with a special offer for all zoo visitors.

Mention “Jabari” at the zoo’s box office and receive a free child admission with each paid adult Oct. 1 – Nov. 2. The offer does not apply to Boo at the Zoo admission and cannot be combined with any other offer. Jabari must be mentioned at the box office at the time of purchase to receive free child admission. The offer is valid for one free child admission per paid adult.

Male calf, Jabari, was born Sept. 5 to first-time mom, Grace, 6, and dad, Travis, 8. He is the 48th giraffe born at the zoo since 1955. Jabari was about 140 pounds and 6 feet tall when he was born.

He joins 2-month-old calf, Adia, who was born in June to first-time mom Jhasmin, and father, Travis, making them half siblings. The zoo’s herd also includes adult female, Jada.
