The Cheyenne Botanic Gardens is close to giving its newest members, two Florida red-bellied cooter turtles who were recently donated and now live in the Conservatory, befitting names.

After receiving several suggestions from the public, the staff has narrowed the names down to five pairs: Tuck and Tim, Squirtle and Yertle, Walter and Boris, Mac and Roni, and Stretch and Namaste.

"You still have time to vote," Director Scott Aker said in a press release. "The ballot box at the front desk will remain open until Thursday, March 30."

Each vote is $1, and there's no limit to how many times you can vote. So if you want to stuff the ballot box with hundreds or thousands of votes for Mac and Roni, I'm sure the staff wouldn't mind.

"This fundraiser will help the gardens with Conservatory improvements and help make the turtles feel right at home," said Akers.
