The Wilds' in Cumberland is hoping you'll "Like" the name for the new baby rhino.

The conservation center received more than 800 entries in it's rhino naming contest and have now narrowed the suggestions down to three.

The names: Firefly, Sparks and Spit Fire. The names have been post of the Wilds' Facebook page and the public is encouraged to vote for their favorite by "Liking" the name of their choice. The voting will end at midnight on Sunday.

The fan that suggested the winning name will be announced on Monday April 25 and will receive a one year family membership to The Wilds'. The staff chose the three names because the rhino is the first calf for 8-year-old sire Fireball who came to the center in 2008 as part of the species survival plan.
