An endangered Grevy's zebra born at Lincoln Park Zoo needs a name.

Zookeepers want animal lovers to vote for their favorite among four Swahili names:

  • Hanisi, which means "born on Thursday";
  • Akili, which means "clever";
  • Kito, which means "jewel"; and
  • Daktari, which means "doctor" or "healer."

Animal enthusiasts can vote at now through Thursday, Aug. 30. The winning name will be announced on Aug. 31, on the zoo's Facebook page, a release from the zoo said.
