• Penguin at National Aviary has new 'Pittsburghese' name

    PITTSBURGH - One of the National Aviary’s new African Penguins has a new name.
    Meet Slippy.
    The name was voted on by social media followers of Peoples Natural Gas.
    Peoples partnered with the aviary for a celebration of African penguins, helping to bring awareness to conservation efforts.


    People on social media got to choose from among four names: Ronney, Fidget, Slippy and Milton.
    With 39 percent of the vote, Slippy was the winner!
    "Slippy" is a Pittsburghese word that means "slippery." Definitely fitting for a penguin.
