Monterey Bay’s First African Penguin Chick

The Monterey Bay Aquarium has had their first ever African (or Blackfooted) penguin hatch on January 8, 2011.  Aw, that one’s a cutie. More details at the aquarium’s blog, Sea Notes. I really appreciate the extra information they give regarding the chick. Amazing stuff.

Update: A second african penguin was born on Tuesday, January 11th. Congratulations!
