June Keyes Penguin Habitat


“The Sweetheart”


Heidi is one of two chicks born at the Aquarium in the summer of 2013.

Heidi loves her brother Anderson, but the two of them bicker like any other siblings, the penguin keepers say. The penguin keepers must offer Heidi her fish in just the right way during feedings, or she will plop them on the ground. She has bonded with one of the Aquarium’s volunteers, and they even “bray” together. Heidi is very nosey and has to be involved in everything, especially if it’s something that the keepers need.
