Chris Pratt, Anna Faris and son name Woodland Park Zoo baby penguin

Posted by: Gigi Allianic, Communications



Actors Anna Faris and Chris Pratt and their son Jack were invited to name Woodland Park Zoo’s 50th Humboldt penguin chick. Pratt and Faris grew up in the Seattle area and love Woodland Park Zoo. The name they selected—Eagle—honors their local roots.

After acing his first veterinary exam last week, Eagle continues to do well and is now spending time out in the exhibit with the colony. You can identify him by his blue band—try to spot him soaring through the water on your next visit!
