    I submitted the name Sheldon, which is the name of my friend’s cat (who she loves more than anything). If this name is chosen, I would like to adopt this hippo as a birthday present for my friend because hippos are her absolute favorite animal! Her birthday is on August 6th. Thank you for all you do for these wonderful creatures!

      Not sure why my suggestion was not sent. Siegfried was the Prince enticed by Odile.
      Happy naming!

      Gill nice idea but I am afraid you have to enter the draw and pay with paypal to name a baby hippo. All those that enter their payment is a donation to help these hippos here have a better life. Many thanks Love Karen and the hippos
