Get ready to meet the Chattanooga Zoo’s newest resident — and help the Tennessee Valley Federal Credit Union name her.

TVFCU is sponsoring the zoo’s new porcupine exhibit, with construction to begin soon, as part of its African expansion. The zoo currently has one family of African cape porcupines that just had a newborn.

TVFCU wants you to help them name the baby porcupine. Submit your name idea for a chance to win — submissions will close on Friday, Feb. 17 at 5 p.m. If your name is chosen by TVFCU employees, you will receive tickets to the groundbreaking ceremony of the exhibit + a year-long membership to the zoo.
