After thousands of votes, the NEW Zoo has named their two boy penguins!
According to the NEW Zoo, the oldest (and largest) chick has been named Cheers, in honor of his January 1st New-Year’s Day birthday. That means the younger of the two chicks is Pip, which is quite fitting, based on his “pipsqueak” size at hatching.

The NEW Zoo and Adventure Park has two new additions!
The popular Suamico zoo had a little fun by sharing a gender reveal video of two African penguins, an endangered species.
After cutting into two different cakes, bright blue slices were twice revealed.
These male chicks play an important role in the future of the endangered species; and the zoo is both pleased and happy to report that both baby penguins are healthy and growing.
But that’s not the end of the fun…
The NEW Zoo is turning to the public for a major responsibility—naming the chicks.
