Recently one of my former journalism colleagues Carrie Ann Grippo-Pike took a road trip from Rochester, New York to the Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville, New York to photograph world-famous, baby giraffe Tajiri.

Grippo-Pike hit the jackpot in terms of weather and activity by Tajiri and a 32 second video she uploaded to her Facebook page of the beautiful creature has gone viral among “Taj” fans.

“It was so fun to see dad giraffe Oliver, mom giraffe April and Taj in person and meet the park staff we viewed every single day on YouTube live!” Grippo-Pike said.

If you haven’t watched the adorable video yet, here it is (with permission from Grippo-Pike):
