LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The Louisville Zoo has a brand new bundle of joy joining the family, but he still needs a name! Instead of zookeepers picking it out, they want your help.
The new baby is a bongo, the largest of the forest antelopes, and he was born in the early morning hours on May 19. The 50-lb. calf and his mother, Isabelle, are both doing well and have joined the other bongos in rotation on exhibit.
If you think you have the perfect name for this little guy, you can submit it on the zoo's website from June 3-9. The top three will be chosen by zookeepers and will be placed on the Zoo's plaza from June 14-23, where guests will get to vote for their favorite.
Coins will be used in the voting process and that money will go back to the Louisville Zoo to help them provide the best possible care for their animals.
