She was the calf that took the world by storm when her livestream went viral a year and a half ago. Azizi was born to April the Giraffe and everyone instantly fell in love.

Well yesterday, the East Texas Zoo and Gator Park facebook page made the tragic announcement that Azizi had passed away.

"We join the East Texas Zoo and Gator Park in mourning the loss of Azizi, who passed unexpectedly at their facility on Tuesday. Azizi was the most recent, and last, calf of April the Giraffe. We know that Azizi's passing could not have been predicted nor prevented. His loss is absolutely devastating to our team, and he will be loved, missed, and cherished by the global Animal Adventure Park community. This news is heartbreaking, and we extend our condolences and support to the facility that Azizi called home."

Our hearts go out to all the people who worked, fed, and loved Azizi while he was alive.
