There’s no prize to win here or any free drinks to be drunk—only a cute way to spend a few minutes of your time. The Prospect Park Zoo just announced the birth of two baby baboons (actually born in late July) who are in need of some proper names. The two boys, known for now as Baby Baboon 1 and… wait for it… Baby Baboon 2, are the first Hamadryas baboons born at the zoo in six years. Since the two moms, Kaia and Rebecca, might not be up on this year’s hottest names (Aiden & Jayden, but we say Bedford & Stuyvesant), the zoo’s turning to all of us.
From now until Sept. 21, you can submit your baby-name suggestions at the zoo’s website. The zoo’s staff will choose names from the entries on Sept. 24. If you just want to visit the little fuzzballs, they’re on view daily between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m at the Prospect Park Zoo, 450 Flatbush Ave.
