The newest family member at the Cincinnati Zoo was born on David Bowie’s birthday. Bowie is the first Zoo Baby of this year.
Pop singer David Bowie, after whom the penguin in named, died on Sunday at the age of 69.
Zoo officials decided it would be a great tribute to the late singer, and so the newest baby penguin at Cincinnati Zoo named “Bowie.”
The Cincinnati Zoo also had a penguin named The King, after Elvis Presley. They share the same birthday.
Take a look at this world-famous Penguin Bowie.
Blue penguins are the smallest species of penguin.
That’s why they’re also called fairy penguins!
