The Aquarium of the Pacific is mourning the loss of its oldest penguin, Henry, who died at age 24.

Henry died Monday due to complications associated with old age. He had been showing signs of decline, including loss of appetite and lethargy, the aquarium said.

Henry had been in the aquarium's June Keyes Penguin Habitat since 2012 and aquarium officials said he "will be greatly missed."
