We had a very exciting day on Monday July 28th. A penguin came to the Stony Plain public library. We got to meet Big Guy. She is a 26 year old penguin that lives at West Edmonton Mall. You can't tell whether a penguin is mall or female unless you do genetic testing and they like to wait until the penguins are a few years old before they do that. Big guy was bigger than the other penguins and more dominating and aggressive, so they figured she had to be male, but when she was four she laid a couple eggs and they realized they were wrong. hahaha But since she was used to her name, they decided to leave it. She is an African Penguin, and has lived her whole life at the West Edmonton Mall. It was very nice seeing a penguin so close.
