And the Winner is…
More than 500 people took part in AZGSs "Name the Baby Wooly Mammoth" contest at last weekend's Tucson Festival of Books. (Hundreds more stroked the soft yak hair covering the museum-quality replica of a 1-year old mammoth.).
The names ranged widely, and wildly, from Wooly to Choxie to Zeus, with the most common names being Fluffy (a big hit with the three- to six-year old set), Mannie (the wooly mammoth of the animated movie series, Ice Age) and Wooly—or some variant thereof, e.g., Wooly Bully.
Over lunch, six volunteers from the AZGS staff perused all the entry slips and selected 15 favorite names (see below). AZGS employees then voted for their favorite name. And the results:
- Tunguska - by Hugo F.
- Wooliam - by Helen Bailey & by Jenny B.
- Bubba - by Daniel
The winners receive a $10.00 voucher for use in our bookstore.
