The Atlanta Falcons lost the Super Bowl to the New England Patriots, and thus Zoo Atlanta lost a bet with Roger Williams Park Zoo in Providence, R.I.
The bet was that if the Patriots won, Zoo Atlanta had agreed to name a baby animal after Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. If the Falcons would have won, an animal would have to be named after Atlanta QB Matt Ryan.
Zoo Atlanta held up its end of the bargain. Meet Tom Brady, a baby Madagascar hissing cockroach.
Nothing can make up for the epic collapse the Falcons had in the Super Bowl, but maybe Tom Brady, the cockroach, can help them heal.

Well … the New England Patriots won #SuperBowlLI, so that means we lost our bet with Roger Williams Park Zoo & Carousel Village. Before the game, our two zoos decided the losing side would name one of their baby animals after the winning team’s star quarterback, and figuring the losing side would be pretty bitter about it, we came to the agreement that baby animal … would be a Madagascar hissing cockroach. So without further ado - Meet our newly-named Program Animal family!
