Help name this baby gorilla

Posted by Geeky Swedes on February 29th, 2008

I know we’re going a little zoo crazy here on My Ballard, but who can resist posting a photo of a cute baby gorilla? The Woodland Park Zoo is kicking off a naming contest for this female western lowland gorilla born last October. Says the zoo, “Only names submitted in the African languages of Swahili, Hausa, Igbo, or Yoruba will qualify for the grand prize.” (What did we do before Google?) Anyway, these naming contests are going corporate these days, so entry forms are available at Ivar’s and Kidd Valley, or you can just download a form on the zoo’s site.
