CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

It's a girl! Shedd Aquarium staff revealed the gender of their newest Rockhopper Penguin. But she still needs a name – and members will be able to help decide what she's called.

She hatched in June of 2013. But boy and girl Rockhopper Penguins look alike from the outside, so they had to do a blood test to find out.

Guests young and old enjoyed the gender reveal party, as you can see in the photos above!

A Shedd Aquarium spokesperson said members will be emailed a link once the survey opens in April. Their votes will decide the baby penguin's name.
