Since asking the readers of this paper to help name two adorable endangered leopard cubs, a Norfolk zoo has received thousands of entries from across the world.

A pair of rare female Sri Lankan leopards were were born in September at Banham Zoo and to celebrate their arrival our readers have been asked to choose their names.

With fewer than a thousand of these endangered animals in the wild, the birth of the cubs has been warmly welcomed by the zookeepers.

Over 700 names were suggested with entries coming from as far away as Sri Lanka itself so they have narrowed the selection to five and are giving the final say back to our readers.

Select your two favourite names from the poll and help Banham Zoo decide what to name the two Sri Lankan leopard cubs.
