As if there was any doubt, one of the new Nigerian dwarf goats at the Oklahoma City Zoo will be named Gotebo.

Oklahoma City Zoo officials this week announced the results of their Name That Goat Contest. Name submissions were limited to the names of Oklahoma towns. More than 600 suggestions came in for the dozen goats that will live in the new Children’s Zoo, set to open in March, zoo officials said.

Gotebo received the most votes. The other goats will be named Bowlegs, Bixby, Chandler, Dewey, Duncan, Edmond, Hugo, Jet, Norman, Oologah and Perry. Zoo staff assigned the names.


The Children’s Zoo
The new Children’s Zoo exhibit at the Oklahoma City Zoo is set to open March 12. The exhibit is near the center of the zoo and will cost about $8 million. Nine areas, including a petting zoo and the lorikeet exhibit, will branch off from a central display. The petting zoo will be home to many domesticated animals, including the 12 Nigerian dwarf goats.
