What are gray, white and un-bird-lievably adorable? Our two newest penguin chicks! 🐧❤️🐧
Last week, we welcomed two tiny additions to our African penguin colony, which are currently on exhibit in the Splash Zone gallery. The first chick hatched on Monday, December 9 and, as of its last check-up, weighs 292 grams. The second chick hatched on Friday, December 13 and currently weighs 123 grams. We don’t yet know the sex of the chicks so stay tuned for updates!
The chicks will remain on exhibit with their parents until they become more mobile, when they’ll be moved behind the scenes for a few months to learn how to penguin. Welcome to the world, little ones!
