The Toronto Zoo is letting people pick the name of their new baby zebra
The baby joins a group of the zoo's Grevy's zebras, the largest living wild mammal of the horse family.
He will be named after a Star Wars-inspired list, in keeping with the Toronto Zoo tradition. Previous zebra babies were named Luke, Leia, Rey and Obi.

According to National Geographic, the Grevy's zebras are native to Ethiopia and northern Kenya. Unfortunately, they are an endangered species and have to travel farther and farther for food and water as their habitat shrinks.
Voting is open until Sunday, December 20, 2020 at 11:59 p.m. The name with the most votes will be announced on Tuesday, December 22, 2020.
