"Rudy" finalist for baby giraffe name!

He may be only 5 foot nothin', 100 and nothin', but "Rudy" has been chosen as one of three finalist in the naming contest for the baby giraffe at the Louisville Zoo! You may recall that Sean met the then 5-day old giraffe when while in Louisville for Fandom Fest this summer.

Now three months old, the youngster is 7'2". Louisville Zoo visitors can vote for "Rudy" or one of the other finalists "Silvester" and "Cassius" by dropping money in the kiosk near the Zoo's entrance. Voting ends October 14.

Sean already has a young black-footed ferret named Twoflower in his honor residing at the Zoo. Pretty soon they may name the whole Zoo after him! ;-)
