Gatz

"The Guardian" - This penguin has a big attitude! Gatz is Roxy and Floyd’s fifth chick, and he loves to be the center of attention.

Robin Riggs - Aquarium of the Pacific

He hatched on May 22, 2017, and while innocent and quiet in the nursery, it all changed when he entered the June Keyes Penguin Habitat. It took him a few weeks to fit in and swim with the big birds, but once he did he gained his confidence. During feeding time, he guards the bucket from the other birds so he gets first pick of herring. He only eats capelin when another bird wants one, because in Gatz’s world it is all about him!
