Name Those Pups
Miami Seaquarium recently welcomed two sea lion pups — one girl and one boy — to its marine family and now the theme park is turning to the public to give them names.
Through 11:59 p.m. Sept. 14, anyone can vote for their favorite names from a list of four for each of the pups. By voting, you get a chance to win a seal experience for two, including swimming with them.
The names choices for the girl are: Wasabi, Ginger, Won Ton and Sashimi, a tribute to the pup’s mom Sushi.
The names for the boy follow a champion theme: Thunder, Flash, Champ and Justify.
Amy Spaulding, Miami Seaquarium assistant supervisor of animal training, said the contest was a fun way for the public to get involved.
“”We want you guys . . . to come down here and help us name our babies,” she said.
