VANCOUVER - Feeling a little owly? Ready to embrace your inner lion?

The Greater Vancouver Zoo is looking for seven people to take a walk on the wild side, and speak up for some of the animal stars of an upcoming commercial.

Seven winners of the zoo's Step Into the Wild contest will get to provide the voice for a zoo resident to be featured in the ad.

The winners will also get a family day pass to the zoo.

Contestants can follow a link from the zoo's Facebook page to find the lines for Boomer the lion, Hagrid the owl, Hazina the Hippo, Shadow the Grizzly, the spurred tortoise, a parrot, or a capybara (a semi-aquatic rodent from South America).

The contest opens Monday and entrants have until midnight on June 14 to record a video of themselves reciting the lines of their favourite animal and upload it to YouTube.
