Time's running out if you wanted to name Paignton Zoo's new baby giraffe.

The female calf was born last month and staff captured the whole experience on camera.

The zoo has come up with a shortlist of ten names, including Afya, Florrie and Kaleena, and people have to vote by this Sunday.

The zoo is part of the European Endangered Species Programme for the Northern giraffe, which is classified as endangered.
