2007_11_29.babybeluga.JPGThe Shedd needs your help for the whales. In particular, by naming their newest, a male baby Beluga whale.

You can choose form a list of names already entered, or suggest your own. [Ed. note: It is going to be tough to top Mister Splashy Pants, but we can do it!] The little fella's name will be chosen on Dec. 21st from the top five suggestions. A winning voter gets a year membership to the Shedd and a "trainer for a day" session for four. has a ginormous Cute Overload-esque section for you to coo over if, you know, Belugas are your thing.
