The Woodland Park Zoo is asking the public to help name two of its four lion cubs in a naming contest that starts today and ends at 5 p.m. March 15.

In honor of the the male and female cubs’ South African heritage, the names should come from Zulu or Sotho culture, according to the zoo. Names can be submitted online, or with a ballot obtained at the zoo. Ballots can be turned in at the zoo or mailed to Woodland Park Zoo, ATTN: Name the Cubs, 601 N. 59th Street, Seattle, WA 98103.

 Two winners will also receive grand prizes, which include: a private viewing for five at the lion exhibit with a keeper, a one-year annual Woodland Park Zoo family membership, a framed photograph of the newly named lion cub, a $100 gift card to Play It Again Sports in Seattle.

Two other cubs will be named by zoo staff, according to a release. The four cubs made their public debut on Feb. 16. They can be seen from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. daily, weather permitting.
