UTICA, N.Y. – Voting is still open to name the Utica Zoo’s red panda cubs, and there are three sets of names to choose from.
Zoo staff researched Chinese names that seemed to fit each cub.
Naming options include:
Lienna (girl as beautiful as a lotus flower)
Xiao Mei (little plum)
Xiabo (little wrestler)
Mei Lin (beautiful forest)
One donation equals one vote, and funds will go toward the Red Panda Network.
Votes can be cast at the zoo’s website: www.uticazoo.org.
