The royal baby's got a bilby! And no, this isn't just a tongue twister.

As part of a gift package put together by Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, an enclosure for bilbies, Australian desert-dwelling marsupials, will be named in honor of the newborn prince at Sydney's Taronga Zoo. Oh, and Baby Cambridge will get some cuddly bilby toys to match!

"Taronga Zoo is incredibly proud to be part of the Australian Government's gift to the Royal Baby, supporting Bilby conservation," reads a post on the zoo's Facebook page.

But the question still remains: what will the enclosure (and the baby!) be called?
