It Takes a Village to Name a Dolphin

Or, at least, a couple thousand Facebook fans! This adorable baby dolphin at the Minnesota Zoo has been having an identity crisis since her birth in July, but luckily, the zoo’s Facebook fans stepped in and submitted their votes to give the bottlenose calf a name. Taijah, the winning name with 37 percent of the votes, is four feet long and 60 pounds — some baby! — and the zoo describes her as "spunky, inquisitive, bold, and sassy."

Check out more photos of Taijah after the break!
