WACO, Texas  — A Texas zoo has set up a gift registry for an orangutan couple who are expecting a baby.

The Cameron Park Zoo in Waco is requesting several items on the Target registry, including the movie “Zootopia,” stuffed animals, a musical crib mobile, SpongeBob SquarePants bubble bath, books and a Dolly Parton CD.

Several items on Mei and KJ’s registry have been purchased. Mei is due in late January.

Zoo curator of exhibits and programs Terri Cox says each of the items on the gift registry was selected to help provide enrichment for the new arrival and other zoo animals.

The zoo is also planning to host a baby orangutan shower on Dec. 18 near the orangutan exhibit. Human guests will be able to enjoy cake.
