Looks like our baby giraffe spotted the web cam in his barn. His curious licks were caught in extreme close up on the cam—check out that tongue!

The cam was always safely secured, but it sure did take a licking!

Some of our dedicated giraffe cam viewers even caught him in the act while watching live:

We'd love to know what you see when you tune into the giraffe baby cam. Send your best screenshots and observations to, tweet or Instagram to @woodlandparkzoo (#giraffecam), or post to our Facebook timeline

And of course, don't miss the chance to see the calf in person! He has access to the outdoor area of the giraffe barn daily, and tends to head out there mid-mornings through afternoons.

We know the next big piece of news you all are waiting for is his official name! We should have something to share on that front shortly. Check back soon!
