Woodland Park Zoo names baby penguin

Woodland Park Zoo celebrated its 60th Humboldt penguin chick birth since 2010 and the newest little resident finally has a name.

The public had the choice between three Spanish possibilities, Diamante (diamond), Sesenta (which means 60) and Amor (love). After much decision making the chosen name has been revealed as Diamante.

At the moment, little Diamante is gaining weight by eating a good amount of herring and trout and is getting plenty of sleep. Check out the video of Diamante below:

Humboldt penguins are native to the coast of Peru and Chile. Woodland Park Zoo confirmed that it has one of the most successful and productive Humboldt breeding programs in the country.
