Unnamed penguin chick born Oct. 30, 2012.

The Little Rock Zoo announced Friday that it’s hosting a contest to name its newest baby boy: a South African penguin.

The chick was born Oct. 30, zoo officials said.

Submission forms for the naming contest are available at LittleRockZoo.com/NameOurBaby.

They also may be picked up during the World Penguin Day celebration Sunday or at the zoo’s gift shop through Feb. 1, zoo officials said. 

Entries are due 5 p.m. Feb 1. After that, the penguin keepers will select their top three choices and the public may vote on their favorite. 

The three top name choices will be announced on Feb. 6, on the Zoo’s Facebook page.

Ocean-themed names are preferred, but any submission is welcome, zoo officials added.
