Cincinnati Zoo Names Newborn Penguin After David Bowie

By Robert Paul Reyes

"An Ohio zoo has named one of its newborn baby penguins in memory of legendary performer David Bowie, who died this week.


The 5-day-old penguin was born on Bowie`s birthday, Jan. 8, two days before the singer died. The Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden shared video of the newborn penguin on Monday."


I predict that there will be dozens of human babies in England, America and all over the world named after the influential and iconic singer and musician David Bowie.

Why not name a baby penguin born on Bowie`s birthday in memory of the legendary performer? I`m sure animal lovers and Bowie fans are thrilled at this great honor; I just wish I lived in Ohio so I could visit tiny David Bowie.

I will use this story as an excuse to post a couple of David Bowie videos, enjoy!
