Atlanta Zoo Settles Super Bowl Bet By Naming Cockroach ‘Tom Brady’
Well … the New England Patriots won #SuperBowlLI, so that means we lost our bet with Roger Williams Park Zoo & Carousel Village. Before the game, our two zoos decided the losing side would name one of their baby animals after the winning team’s star quarterback, and figuring the losing side would be pretty bitter about it, we came to the agreement that baby animal … would be a Madagascar hissing cockroach. So without further ado – Meet our newly-named Program Animal family!
“Tom Brady” is now part of the Atlanta Zoo family thanks to a Super Bowl bet!
According to Zoo Atlanta’s Facebook post, it lost a bet with Rhode Island’s Roger Williams Park Zoo that required the loser to name a baby animal after the winning quarterback…so they chose a baby Madagascar hissing COCKROACH.
