Chehaw babies need names

You can see two cute baby emus at Chehaw's Wild Animal Park. They were born March 1st. After some special care and time with their mom, they're now on public display.

Zoo Director Kevin Hils said, "I think it's pretty exciting for us to be able to expand the number animals that we're doing at Chehaw. By bringing in a whole new set of animals, it does give us the ability to show some of those fun animals from the Land Down Under."

Chehaw is holding a contest to name the emus. They're hoping for names with an Australian flare since emus are native to Australia. The winning entries get a behind the scenes visit with the emus and lunch with the zoo director.

You can mail your suggestions Tonya Hart at 105 Chehaw Park Rd., Albany, GA, 31707 or email contest@chehaw.org.
