Newport’s prognosticating penguin disagrees with Ohio rodent

Paula did not see shadow at Newport Aquarium 
Feb 02, 2016
NEWPORT, Ky. —Step aside Punxsutawney Phil and Buckeye Chuck; the Newport Aquarium claimed a penguin can also predict an early spring.

Paula the prognosticating penguin waddled outside of the Newport Aquarium Tuesday morning and did not see her shadow. She predicted an early spring for the Cincinnati area, agreeing with the famed groundhog in Punxsutawney.

However, Paula seems to be at odds with Ohio’s groundhog Buckeye Chuck. Chuck, the groundhog from Marion, is reported to have seen his shadow Tuesday morning.

According to legend, if a critter sees its shadow on Feb. 2, winter will last another month-and-a-half. If he doesn't see it, spring will come early.
