Denver Zoo asking public to help name 2 new lion cubs

Two African lion cubs were recently born at the Denver Zoo, and they need names. The zoo wants your help with that.

The cubs, a male and female, were born Sept. 10. It’s the first time lion cubs have been at the zoo since 2006.

The winners of the online naming contest will get a behind-the-scenes tour of the zoo’s Benson Predator Ridge exhibit and $50 worth of lion-themed merchandise.

You have to be a resident of one of the seven counties in the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District that helps support the zoo. Those counties include Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Broomfield, Denver, Douglas and Jefferson.

You can submit your name suggestions here:  http://woobox.com/uyks3b
