GALVESTON -- Moody Gardens in Galveston has an adorable new resident.

The king penguin chick hatched earlier this month, but suffered an injury shortly after getting out of its shell.

The tough chick made a quick recovery, so zookeepers decided to name it Watt -- after Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt.

We’re not sure if Watt is a boy or a girl. Zookeepers will eventually perform a blood test to determine the penguin’s sex.
