The Cincinnati Zoo welcomed their first baby animal of 2016 when this baby penguin came into the world on Friday.
Friday happened to be the birthday of both Elvis Presley and David Bowie. With the zoo already having a penguin named “King,” they decided to name this little baby “Bowie.”

This took on even more meaning with news of David Bowie’s death on Sunday.

The Cincinnati Zoo is home to the largest colony of penguins in the United States. But if you’re hoping to visit them, you’ll have to wait until spring as the babies prefer milder weather.
