Zoo looks for a name for its baby

SHANGHAI Zoo is looking for a name for its baby gorilla, now one year old. The zoo wants the name to suit the active, bright male and have a Shanghai feeling to it as well, the Oriental Morning Post reported today.

The zoo gave the gorilla a birthday party yesterday with a birthday cake made from his favorite foods including lettuces, garlic, apples and bananas. A carrot acted as the birthday candle. The gorilla was only half the size of a new-born human baby one year ago.

If you want to suggest a name, check with the zoo's Website ( and send up to three likely names before May 31.

The zoo will select the six most popular names and put them on its Website for a final vote.

Gorillas are endangered animals and this is only the second gorilla born in a Chinese zoo.
