TAMPA, Fla. — Say hello to Stanley!

Busch Gardens' newest giraffe is named after the championship trophy the Tampa Bay Lightning took home the same night it was born. 

The theme park said it wasn't trying to steal the team's thunder, but the name was a clear winner.

According to the theme park, Stanley is the first calf his mother Angel has been given birth to. The duo is said to be doing well and bonding behind the scenes at the theme park. 

A team at Busch Gardens is monitoring Stanley's progress and will clear him to join the rest of the herd once he reaches "key growth milestones."
