The walleroo family at the Racine Zoo has a new baby, and he needs a name.

Momma Millie and dad Wilbur welcomed their new boy approximately nine months ago. He joins older brothers Winston and Walter, and the Zoo is asking for the community’s help coming up with an equally distinguished name that also starts with, “W.”

A special Facebook page has been created for the naming contest. Entries are due by 5 p.m. November 18, and the winner will be drawn at random.

“Since his dad, Wilbur, starts with a ‘W,’ it’s customary to name a new male with a name that starts with the same letter to keep our lineage in order,” the Zoo wrote on the contest page.
