North Carolina Aquarium needs help naming otter pups
KURE BEACH, N.C. (WITN) - The North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher needs help naming its newest additions.
The three female Asian small-clawed otter pups are ready to be named, and the aquarium is asking for the public’s input.
The pups were born May 21 during a full moon, king tide, and a storm. Their native habitat is Indonesia, southern China, southern India, Southeast Asia, and the Philippines.
They have narrowed it down to four choices to pick from:
- Stella, Mae, and Selene (moon, Thailand moon goddess and goddess of the moon)
- Padma, Bulan, and Melati (Indonesia’s three national flowers-the Giant Padma, Anggrek Bulan, the moth orchid, and Melati Putih, the Arabian Jasmine.)
- Tala, Reyna, and Ula (bright star, queen, and small one)
- Java, Bali, and Nusa (Volcanic islands in Indonesia)
