High Park Zoo seeks public’s help naming baby capybaras, lambs born at Riverdale

CityNews | posted Thursday, Apr 20th, 2017

Their parents were aptly named Bonnie and Clyde after a daring escape from captivity that made international headlines last summer.

But life on the lam would soon be replaced by the domestic responsibilities of parenthood for High Park Zoo’s infamous capybaras.

The fury rebels recently had triplets, but unlike their parents, the “capybabies” remain nameless.

That’s where you can help.

High Park Zoo wants the public’s suggestions when it comes to naming the three babies.

Of course, it won’t be easy as their sexes remain undetermined. So, think Pat from Saturday Night Live, or a similarly androgynous moniker.

A short list of names will be determined by zoo staff. Then the public will be able to vote starting May 8.

Meanwhile in the east end, Riverdale Farm is welcoming three little lambs.

The City of Toronto Parks, Forestry and Recreation department tweeted out a photo of one of the new arrivals on Wednesday.
