A Norfolk aquarium has held a gender reveal party for its young humboldt penguin chick.
Squirt, who was born on May 21, was revealed by Sea Life Hunstanton staff at the ceremony to be a female.
The chick was declared a girl following a DNA check.
The penguin, who weighed 90g at birth, was named Squirt by staff after her projectile “toilet habits."
Squirt's gender reveal party was laid on by the aquarium after a competition was held on Facebook to guess the penguin's sex, with the winner receiving two tickets to the park.
News of the party was also shared on This Morning, with the hosts eagerly anticipating the reveal.
