Name the National Zoo's

So the Smithsonian Institution's National Zoo has a new, baby Giant Anteater, which was born on July 24th.

The Zoo is making a wonderful use of the Web: Polling people for the name of the new Anteater.

At the moment, they don't know if the baby is... well -- whether the Anteater should be wearing blue or pink.

In late August, the baby will be examined by Zoo vets, and we will learn if it's male or female and announce the winning name.


The Zoo did this with the baby Panda, Tai Shan, a few years ago -- and got big tallies.
