The Atlanta Zoo made a Super Bowl bet with Roger Williams Park Zoo that the Atlanta Falcons would win the big game. However, that did not happen so they had to name one of their baby animals after the winning team’s quarterback!
Which animal did they chose? Meet their new baby cockroach Tom Brady!!
“Well … the New England Patriots won #SuperBowlLI, so that means we lost our bet with Roger Williams Park Zoo & Carousel Village. Before the game, our two zoos decided the losing side would name one of their baby animals after the winning team’s star quarterback, and figuring the losing side would be pretty bitter about it, we came to the agreement that baby animal … would be a Madagascar hissing cockroach. So without further ado – Meet our newly-named Program Animal family!”
