BALTIMORE (AP) — The San Francisco Zoo is scheduled to make good on a Super Bowl wager with The Maryland Zoo.
Starting on Monday the San Francisco Zoo is supposed to re-name the enclosure of its black rhino “Boone,” the namesake of 49ers offensive tackle Alex Boone. For the next month the enclosure will be named in honor of the Super Bowl champion Ravens, who beat the 49ers 34 to 31. The win was the second Super Bowl victory for the team.
The Maryland Zoo is home to the Ravens’ official mascots, the ravens Rise and Conquer. If the 49ers had won, The Maryland Zoo would have re-named Rise and Conquer’s enclosure the “San Francisco 49ers exhibit.”
