Virginia Zoo Holding Contest to Name New Lion Cub

Do you have a spare dollar (or ten) this holiday season? The Virginia Zoo is holding a contest to name its newest lion cub, with a goal of helping other furry felines in the wild.

A $1 donation counts toward one name submission in the contest, which runs through December 22.

The male cub was born on Oct. 28 to mom Zola and dad Mramba.

The zoo says it is donating all of the money from the contest to the Pride Lion Conservation Alliance.
