Four reindeer have arrived at the Phoenix Zoo just in time for the annual Phoenix Zoolights.

Santa’s helpers made the trip all the way from Windswept Ranch Petting Zoo in Willow Springs, California.

Three of the reindeer are adults, while one is a six-month-old baby who is currently unnamed. This is where you get to help. Phoenix Zoo is asking the public to vote on a name for the baby reindeer. Voters have three choices: Flurry, Noel, or Caribae (our fav). 

Voting will end on Monday, Nov. 26. The winning name will be announced on Wednesday, Nov. 28. Those who vote will have the opportunity to win a Phoenix Zoo Prize Package. 

Zoo goers can get close to the reindeer in the day or visit them at night during Phoenix Zoolights, which starts Wednesday, Nov. 21. You can buy your tickets online.
