sloth bear cub (Smithsonian’s National Zoo)
WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- The National Zoo gave its Facebook fans three choices of names for its sloth bear cub earlier this week. Now, zoo officials say 830 fans picked the winning name Hank.
Hank is a combination of the cub's parents' names, which are Hana and Francois (or Frank). Hank beat out the options of Ravi and Bandar.
Zoo officials say keepers will now have a name to use for the sloth bear cub for traning.
Hank will appear with the rest of his family later this summer, say zoo officials.
