The Miami Seaquarium wants the public to help them name their newest dolphin calf.

The female dolphin calf was born at the park on Oct. 30 and is the fifth offspring of Panama, a 23-year-old bottlenose dolphin that was also born at the park. The father is 27-year-old Sundance, who was also born at Miami Seaquarium.

The park is launching a Facebook sweepstakes beginning Thursday to name the calf. Fans can choose one of four names: 1. Boo, 2. Olive, 3. Sanibel and 4. Tortuga.

Anyone who votes will be automatically entered to win a Dolphin Encounter for two. The park will randomly pick a winner from all of the entries. The sweepstakes ends on Jan. 7 and the winner will be announced on Jan. 8.
