MYSTIC 7/2/08 An African penguin eats a fish that was fed to him by a trainer at Mystic Aquarium during a Penguin Party celebrating the gender identification of two male penguin chicks. Penguin gender can only be determined by a blood test that can't be administered until they are three months of age. The two chicks were born in January, so they just received the test results and the Aquarium staff decided to celebrate. A jello fish "cake" was made, but the penguins preferred being fed fish by hand.
