ATLANTA (AP) - Atlanta's zoo is inviting the public to vote on names for twin giant panda cubs born in September.
The twins will be named on their 100th day of life, which falls on Dec. 12, in accordance with Chinese tradition. Panda fans can go to Zoo Atlanta's website to vote on names.
The seven pairs of names to choose from were supplied by a panda conservation center in Chengdu, China. The pair with the most votes wins.
The bears are on loan from China.
The zoo says the seven sets of names have special connection to the cubs or their parents.
Voting opens Monday and is set to run through 11 p.m. on Dec. 4. The names will be revealed at a 100 Day Naming Celebration on Dec. 12.
