Griffin (born January 1, 2014) is a male reticulated giraffe born to Willow and Jalil at the Birmingham Zoo.

The Zoo held a naming contest for the calf, with the majority of 2,800 voters on Facebook choosing "Griffin" over "Kwame" and "Patton".

Griffin was transferred to the White Oak Conservation Center in Yulee, Florida in September 2015.
