The Little King
A fluffy little chick has hatched in our Penguin Playground as part of the 9th successful King penguin breeding season and we need your help giving it a name! The chick hatched in the Aquarium’s icy penguin habitat on 2 February weighing 221 grams. The baby was born to long-time couple Ernie and Hudson, who have been taking excellent care of the newest member of their family.
Entries for the naming competition have now closed. The winner will be contacted shortly!
