Penguin named ‘Her Majesty Gertrude Sprinklebottom’ joins Columbus Zoo


Many new baby animals are being born at the Columbus Zoo, and one of them is a penguin named Her Majesty Gertrude Sprinklebottom, reports Inside Edition.

Gertie, as zoo employees have nicknamed her, is just one of seven new baby penguins to debut at the zoo. She was born in mid-February by Katja and Hans, but penguins Asela and Chirriante are acting as her adoptive parents. Currently, Gertie weighs more than two pounds and is beginning to eat solid food.

Gertie is not the only new addition to the Columbus Zoo. A female silver leaf langur and five Asian small-clawed otters were born shortly before Gertie.
