Name the Baby Elephant competition



You can help Melbourne Zoo name their brand new baby elephant!

As the offspring of a Thai-born mother, the baby elephant will be given one of three Thai names. Keepers have observed that the calf is independent, confident, boisterous and bold, and he loves running and being in the water, so the selected Thai names reflect his personality.

Choose from the elephant names below and go into the draw to win one of three great prizes:
•    An overnight Roar 'n' Snore camp experience at Melbourne Zoo for two adults and two children (minimum age: 5 years)
•    A Behind the Scenes Seal Encounter at Melbourne Zoo for two adults and two children (minimum age: 12 years)
•    A Family Membership to Zoos Victoria valid for one year (two adults and two children).

Total retail value of the prizes is $1,264 as at 19 February 2012.

Competition closes on 11.55pm (AEDT) on Sunday 10/03/2013. Only one entry per person.
