Audubon Aquarium Names Massive Penguin Chick

The Aquarium’s newest addition, an African penguin chick now named Titan, will soon join the penguin colony. Titan received his larger-than-life name after a moon of Saturn and due to his impressive size (thanks to a healthy diet of herring and capelin) which nearly rivals his father Ocio’s size. Before he can join his family in the colony, Titan must learn how to swim. Upon joining the colony, guests will be able to spot him easily as he will still have charcoal gray baby feathers instead of the species’ signature black and white look.
