Akron Zoo penguins name themselves

Four Humboldt penguin chicks at the Akron Zoo were given the opportunity to select their own names from the 646 names submitted by the worldwide public.

Meet Poquita, Aletta, Fausto and Guapo.

There are less than 20 zoos in the country that feature the Humboldt penguin, which is on the endangered species list, because there are less than 10,000 Humboldt penguins in the world.
