If you're still going through panda cam withdrawal in the wake of the government shutdown, here's something to take the edge off: The twin giant panda cubs at Zoo Atlanta need names – and you can help!
The male cubs, born to mom Lun Lun, are now 87-days-old and the zoo intends to name them on their 100th day in accordance with a Chinese tradition that is said to bring about good luck. The two are currently referred to as "Cub A" and "Cub B."
In keeping with the pandas's Chinese heritage, possible names were derived from ancient Chinese idioms and provided to the zoo by the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding. Voting ends Oct. 21 at noon via GoodMorningAmerica.com.
Things are going swimmingly for OD the sea turtle!
