The nominations are in, and it’s time to choose names for Knoxville Zoo’s red panda cubs! After receiving more than 1,000 submissions, the zoo has narrowed the field to four pairs of finalists. Now it’s up to the public to vote on what the male and female siblings will be officially christened.
You can read the entire release, right smack here.
The naming options are:
- Tabei and Tenzing (some first pioneers to reach the summit of Mount Everest)
- Madeline and Tim (I am not making this up!)
- Shyla and Beaumont (something to do with the Smoky Mountains and East Tennessee)
- Summitt and Neyland (in honor of Pat Summitt and General Robert Neyland)
I betcha Lord McIntyre is upset right, and Tom Ingram is probably getting a little nervous.
