(Neb.)-Omaha Zoo Hosts Naming Contest For Aardvark Baby

By: Roxie Graham-Marski Posted at: 12/28/2012 08:21 AM

     OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Omaha zoo officials are asking the public to help them name its new female aardvark calf.
     Officials at Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium say entries will be accepted through Jan. 10 at the aardvark calf display in Kingdoms of the Night.
     Staff taking care of the aardvark, a nocturnal mammal native to Africa, will select the winning name. The person with the winning entry will win a hands-on educational experience with the aardvark's father and mother.
     Zoo officials recently said the aardvark calf was being hand-raised by staff because her mother has a history of not being able to raise calves.
