Baby Penguin Named “Bowie” Is Welcomed At The Cincinnati Zoo

The Cincinnati Zoo celebrated the birth of its first baby animal on Friday, a blue penguin. As Friday was both Elvis Presley’s and David Bowie’s birthday, but the zoo already has a penguin named “The King,” it was decided that the penguin would be named “Bowie.”

“Meet Bowie, the first Zoo Baby of 2016! The chick was named after @DavidBowieReal because today is his birthday!,” tweeted the Zoo. The zoo says the baby penguin hatched at 6 am Friday, weighing less than 46 grams (1.6 ounces).
