DALLAS (AP) - The newest giraffe at the Dallas Zoo will be named by someone who’s paying $50,000 to choose the moniker.

Zoo spokeswoman Laurie Holloway on Monday said the individual has not yet selected a name for the male calf born Oct. 26.

Holloway says the bidder, who does not wish to be publicly identified, offered the top price Saturday night at the Dallas Zoo’s annual fundraiser. The giraffe-naming money will benefit conservation efforts.

Officials say the reticulated giraffe measured 6 feet tall and weighed about 120 pounds at birth.
