While people in Denver are very familiar with Nelia and Tobias, who are the parents of this little one, she has no name yet. Therefore, the zoo is trying to help its fans by name. According to Bored Panda, the choices are Miro, which is the name of a mountain in Tanzania, Morimi, which is the name of a game reserve in Botswana, and Tatu, which is the Swahili word for number three. The baby is the tiger’s third child. The zoo is encouraging everyone to vote and donate $ 1 to the three finalists.
