The Newport Aquarium new baby king penguin had his debut appearance Tuesday.
Kevin Bacon (yes, he is named after the actor), was revealed to a group of third-graders from St. Francis de Sales School, Lebanon, during a visit to the aquarium.
The aquarium's penguin population has produced three chicks in a nine-month span.
Kevin Bacon, who weighed 7.93 ounces when he was hatched Feb. 7, now weighs 2.5 pounds.
The chick's expected hatching date was Friday the 13th, so he was named for the actor who starred in the movie.
The chick's parents are Bebe (father) and Wednesday (mother). He is the second chick the pair has reproduced.
The aquarium's king penguin population has produced three chicks in a nine-month span. There has been an average of only 14 king penguin hatchlings annually over the last 10 years at zoos and aquariums in the United States, said senior biologist Dan Clady.
