Help name the Zoo's anteater pup

Capital Land,Erica Redmond

One of the newest additions to the National Zoo needs a name, and zoo officials are asking the public for help.

People can vote online for one of five names for the baby anteater born Dec. 7 — Pablo, Termito, Demetrio, Fausto or Valerio — until noon on March 28. On April 6, the top three names will be coupled with different objects placed throughout the anteater yard. Whichever object/name the mother goes to first will become the name of her pup.

The online poll, as well as the meaning of each of the names, can be found here
