RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- Metro Richmond Zoo owner Jim Andelin has chosen the finalists for naming the zoo's five cheetah cubsM.

The public can vote on the finalists online vote at TimesDispatch.com/cheetah-cam. Votes can be submitted through Sunday and the winning names will be announced Dec. 29.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/1jhlhRX ) says voters can choose from one of four groups -- African names, biblical names, names of presidents from Virginia and names derived from Richmond area localities.

Prizes will be awarded to one random voter. The prizes include a yearlong family pass to the zoo and a private viewing of the cubs.

The cubs aren't on public display. They can be viewed online through the Richmond Cheetah Cam.
