The zoo came up with pairs of names for the cubs for voters to choose from.
- Oolong and Chai … types of tea
- Pabu and Sabal … Pabu means puffball and Sabal means strong one
- Peyton and Eli … it’s likely no explanation is needed
The voting ended Thursday.
The cubs were born at the Denver Zoo in August. They have not made their public debut yet.
