Miami -

A baby flamingo that hatched over the Memorial Day weekend has been named Bella.

After the flamingo was born, Jungle Island began a naming contest for the new baby, and received an overwhelming number of submissions.

The winner of the naming contest will not only have the honor of naming the new flamingo, but will also receive a family 4-pack of tickets to Jungle Island and four tickets to a Miami Marlins game.

Jungle Island will keep Local 10 posted on baby Bella's progress.
