Help Name our Red Panda Cub!

On June 3, 2015, we joyfully welcomed a new red panda cub to the Memphis Zoo family! This sweet baby boy has not been introduced into his habitat, but is currently in the care of his mother, Lucille, while his father Justin is keeping watch in Cat Country! While the pair couldn’t be happier about their sweet cub, they are having trouble deciding on a name. We need your help!    


If you could name our red panda cub, what would you choose? Starting Aug. 28 at noon, we will take suggestions for the perfect name in our Red Panda Cub Naming Contest! Want to submit your name suggestion? Read contest rules below.   

Red Panda Cub Naming Contest Rules   

Submit your red panda cub name suggestions between Aug. 28 and Sept. 8!   To enter, post your name suggestion and your favorite red panda fact to the Memphis Zoo’s Facebook page. Name submissions will be accepted until 5 p.m. CST on Tuesday, Sept. 8.         

Our zookeepers will pick their top five name choices. Winners of the top five submissions will win a behind-the-scenes tour of an exhibit at the Zoo for up to four people.       

Voting on the final name will take place from Sept. 10 to 18.   The top five name choices will be posted with photos of the new red panda cub on the Zoo’s Facebook page and Instagram account. Simply like the photo associated with your name choice to vote! Votes will be accepted until 5 p.m. CST on Friday, Sept. 18.       

The final name will be announced Saturday, Sept. 19 at our Red Panda Naming Party in celebration of International Red Panda Day! The person/s who submitted the winning name will receive a commemorative gift.   

Throughout the contest, we will have lots of fun red panda-related activities going on at the Zoo and on our social media pages. So, be sure to stay tuned!
