The cutest animals on the planet (officially – just ask Lucy in the press office), meerkats were among the exotic animals who visited World Museum in March for a series of “Close Encounters… with live animals!” workshops as part of National Science Week, courtesy of Tropical Inc.
Now those lovely folks need a name for one of their baby female meerkats, and we want you to choose one! All you have to do is think of whatever name you think suits her best, and submit it in the comments below. Alternatively you can tweet your meerkat name on Twitter, adding the hashtag #namethemeerkat, or leave a comment on the World Museum Facebook Wall, also adding #namethemeerkat.
Not only will your name be given to the meerkat, but you will also win a goody bag of meerkat treats – DVDs, books, cuddly toys and more – and have your photo taken with your newly-named meerkat at World Museum in August.
We’ll be listing all the names submitted so far on the Facebook competition page, so you can check out what names people have come up with. Our team at World Museum will pick their favourite unique name at the close of the competition on 30 July 2010, and the winner will be contacted soon after. (The competition is open to all. Only one name per person permitted – if you are submitting multiple names on behalf of others please add their names to your entry.)
