Burro Hall for Kidz!

Pivoting effortlessly from incinerated babies to cuddly kittens (are you taking notes, J-Schoolers?), we bring you the latest additions to Mexico's Zacango Zoo: three black leopard cubs born in captivity on February 11. We get the impression that their parents are supposed to eat them or something, because the fact that they're still alive is pretty big news.

As you know, Burro Hall is generally restricted to readers age 18 and over (exceptionally precocious 16- and 17-year-olds can be granted access on a case-by-case basis). But since many of you have children of your own, and you're trying to keep them busy during summer vacation we're passing on the details of the zoo's "Name the Leopard Cubs" contest (in conjunction with El Universal).

    It's open to kids ages 6-12.

    Name all three cubs (two boys and a girl) and explain why you picked the names.

    Include your full name, age, phone number, email and address. (There's nothing in the rules that says you have to be Mexico or live in Mexico, kids!)

    Send your entries to df@eluniversal.com.mx or by fax, (011-52) 5512-0202 or 5518-6975, by June 20.

Winners receive a "Zacango Zoo gift pack" which, regrettably, is not likely to include a black leopard cub.
