This Is the Last Week to Help the El Paso Zoo Name the New Baby Orangutan
The first Sumatran orangutan ever born at the El Paso Zoo needs a name and you have the rest of this week to help Ibu and Butch decide what it will be. Keepers have narrowed the choices down to these four names:
● Eko (pronounced echo), which is Indonesian for first child
● Pohon (pronounced Pohun) is Indonesian for "tree"
● Moki, an ancient Southwest Pueblo word
● Khaleesi, from the fictional Dorhraki language in the "Game of Thrones" series.
The two names with the most Facebook "Likes" and "Shares" will be part of enrichment activities for Butch from which he'll select one on Father's Day this Sunday.
Take a minute and click on the button below to vote for your favorite name, then share this post with your friends and family so they can vote too. You have until Friday, June 19.
