African Penguin Chicks


Born: March 2013
Home: Minnesota Zoo

All About Baby: Born alongside a sibling in early March, this African penguin waddled into public view at the zoo's 3M Penguins of the African Coast exhibit in early July. This endangered species is from the southwest coast of Africa, currently suffering from catastrophic food shortages due to climate change and the perils of hunting, oil spills and habitat destruction. Luckily, these particular penguin chicks will gain shelter from the world's calamities ... and a whole lot of free anchovies.
