The Como Zoo and Conservatory says it is asking the public to help pick a name for its new baby zebra.

The foal was born on May 30, and is the third offspring for Minnie, one of the zoo's three adult Grant's zebras. Another female, Thelma, is expected to give birth in the coming days.

The zoo is turning to Twitter to direct fans of its fauna to an online survey with four prospective names for the new foal, a female. Both of the zoo's females had foals in 2014

The options for the newest foal's name include Claire, Elsie, Lydia and Nia. The zoo will keep the survey open through next Monday.
