A penguin Birthday Party

The staff at Mystic Aquarium made a penguin "birthday cake" out of colorful jello molds, fish and squid to celebrate the gender identification of two male penguin chicks who were born in January. Penguin gender must be determined by a blood test that can't be administered until the chicks are 3 months old. The chicks and the rest of the adult colony shunned the cake in favor of fish.
