Contest: Name that Warthog!

WAIKIKI (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The Honolulu Zoo's three warthogs need names. The two females and one male, born May 8, are thriving in their exhibit.

The Zoo is now asking for your help in choosing a name for each of them.

Throughout the summer, zoo visitors are encouraged to visit and choose a name that matches each one. Contest applications may be picked up and completed at the Zoo's main snack bar. The winning names will be chosen by a committee of Zoo Mammal Keepers and will be announced on Monday, September 3, on the Zoo's Facebook site.

The Honolulu Zoo is open seven days a week, from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and the warthogs are available for viewing at their enclosure until 3 p.m. daily.

The zoo warns, "like most keiki, they nap a lot, especially when it's hot. If you time your zoo visit during the cooler parts of the day—early morning and later in the afternoon—you will have a better chance to see them at their frisky-est"
