SINGAPORE - Suggest new names for the Singapore Zoo's koalas as part of a Wildlife Reserves Singapore campaign.

Details on how to submit recommendations will be released on the website, www.zoo.com.sg/koala-mania , on Monday.

The four marsupials were given to Singapore by Australia to mark diplomatic relations between both countries as well as Singapore's 50th year of independence.

There is Chan, known as the most active and vocal of the bunch. Idalia, the smallest and youngest koala, which has large fluffy ears.

Pellita, which tends to crave attention from her caretakers and expects to be fed first, and Paddle which is the oldest and most gentle of the group.

The Singapore Zoo will shortlist names based on the submissions.
