query_or_table = "bigquery-public-data.ml_datasets.penguins"
bq_df = bpd.read_gbq(query_or_table)

# Inspect one of the columns (or series) of the DataFrame:

# Compute the mean of this series:
average_body_mass = bq_df["body_mass_g"].mean()
print(f"average_body_mass: {average_body_mass}")

# Find the heaviest species using the groupby operation to calculate the
# mean body_mass_g:
