Community Helps Name Three Lion Cubs
DES MOINES, Iowa — Today at the Blank Park Zoo, three 9-week-old lion cubs are finally getting names and the Des Moines community played a big part in picking those names. Last year in December, Blank Park Zoo asked the community to name ideas. “We had people submit names, we asked for native Swahili names, so basically any name that was native to the region that lions are from,” said Kelsey Kovacevich a Carnivore Primate Keeper at the zoo.
