The Indianapolis Zoo Needs Your Help Naming Their Alligators


Do you have a knack for naming things? Then the Indianapolis Zoo has a task for you!

The Zoo is asking the public to help them name their four new alligators. They’ve already done most of the work, too—you just need to pick between the following four options:

  • Al (Alabama), Carl (Carolina), George (Georgia), Tex (Texas) — Based on states alligators live
  • Cypress, Fig, Glade, Palm — Based on trees/plants found in alligators’ native habitat
  • Champ, Chomp, Snapper, Swamp — Based on Indy Zoo’s new “Reptile Rhyme”

You can make your selection over on the Indianapolis Zoo’s Facebook page. One lucky winner will also get a zoo prize pack, including passes.
