COLORADO SPRINGS, CO — The Cheyenne Mountain Zoo has named its new toadlets from Wyoming.

A fan suggestion from Instagram turned out to be a hit around the office at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo.

The zoo decided to go with naming the toadlets Michael, Dwight, Jim, Pam, Oscar, Kevin, Angela, Phylis, Stanley and Kelly.

The toadlets are doing well and while some are growing more than others, most are dime-sized.

The zoo's conservation keepers are taking notes on each toadlet to provide updates over the next year as they grow in the conservation center before being released into the wild to help restore endangered species in Wyoming.
