Baby Penguin at the Monterey Bay Aquarium

On Saturday, January 8, in a nest, high up in the penguin condos of the Monterey Bay Aquarium Splash Zone exhibit, African blackfooted penguins, Umngane and Dassen became first-time parents!

The new chick was first checked and weighed by staff veterinarian, Dr. Mike Murray and then returned to its proud parents for care and feeding. A second exam two days later revealed the chick had doubled in weight, (4.2 ounces) which is a great sign that the parents are feeding it regularly.

You can see the new baby chick in this video below:
