African Painted Dog Pups Get "Cheesy" Names

The keepers at the Cincinnati Zoo love cheese, and when they thought about the large variety cheeses there are, they decided to have some fun in coming up with names for a litter of 11 African Painted Dog pups. Born to mom Imara and dad Kwasi in October, the two boys have been named Nacho and Muenster, and their sisters are Bleu, Brie, Gouda, Queso, Colby, Swiss, Cojita, Mozzarella and Feta. The keepers use their unique color markings to remember who’s who while the pups learn their names. — See more photos at Zooborns
