On July 28, a baby llama, called a cria, was born at the Minnesota Zoo. The female cria has spent the last few weeks bonding with her mom, named Calypso, and exploring the Zoo’s Llama Trek exhibit.

Now, we need your help in naming the cria. Check out the Minnesota Zoo’s Facebook page starting Saturday, August 17, and vote for your favorite name: Sprinkles or Zoolla (short for Zoo Llama).


Be sure to check back on Facebook to see when we announce the winning name.

Whether you vote or not, you can see the new cria in person. Llama Trek is open daily now through late September and is included with general Zoo admission.
