LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The Louisville Zoo is asking guests to vote for one of three names for the new male bongo calf.

The three names a zoo guest can vote for are Drax, Groot, or Rocket. The zoo said a “Guardians of the Galaxy” theme emerged out of the 2,000 names that were submitted.

Anyone who visits the zoo from June 14 -23 can drop coins and bills into the zoo’s naming kiosk to indicate their favorite name. The name with the highest total donations by June 23 will be the winning name. The winning name will be announced on the zoo’s social media the week of June 24.

All of the proceeds will go to the zoo’s effort to provide excellent care for animals and important conservation and education programs.
