These cute leopard cubs in Tacoma need names
Attention, animal lovers. Two new clouded leopard cubs at the Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium in Tacoma need names.
This isn’t some kind of naming free-for-all where you can name them Bud or Sandy or Pelican Pete. (Whoa! “Flipper” flashback there.) The zoo has offered up a choice of names for the public to vote on — all of them native to the cubs’ native Southeast Asia. They’re a little intimidating to pronounce, so the zoo includes the phonetic spelling and the names’ meaning.
Take a look at the future Mr. Big Belly and Ms. Backwards — and at these other adorable zoo babies we’ve helped name.
