The Shedd Aquarium announced the name for its newest rockhopper penguin chick at a special event Monday morning at Lurie Children’s Hospital — Diego.
Lurie Children’s patients, families, volunteers and staff voted and chose the name Diego for the 10-month-old male rockhopper penguin, who was previously known as Chick 23, according to a release from the Shedd. The chick is the 23rd rockhopper penguin to hatch at the aquarium.
