Her name was chosen to match her markings; she has a heart-shaped spot and corazon means "heart" in Spanish.
The zoo asked for name suggestions on its Facebook page. The zoo keepers sifted through more than 4,000 requests, but said Cora was a unanimous decision.
Some other popular suggestions? Zola, Amore, Ruby, Valentina, Aphrodite and Moyo.
Cora was born to first-time mother CeCe.
