Omaha, NE - Mufasa, Nala, Simba? Sorry, those names are already taken.
The lion cubs at Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo need names. Starting tomorrow, you can enter a facebook naming contest. Winners will get a free zoo membership and spend a morning with the zookeepers for a cat training demonstration.
The cubs, two boys and three girls, were born in December. They are on display in the zoo's Cat Complex with their mother Mfisha and aunt, Ahadi. Their father, Mr. Big, is on display in the same complex.
To enter, you must be a fan of the zoo's Facebook page, Facebook.com/OmahaZoo by March 15t.
Zoo employees will choose twenty "finalist" names, which will be posted on Facebook. The five names with the most votes will win.
The winners will be announced March 29.
