Another Gentoo Penguin Chick

GentooChickwithLachlanWM-editedCalgary Zoo – On Friday, July 4th, a gentoo penguin egg hatched in Penguin Plunge! This is the second to hatch this year and the second young one for parents Giselle and Lachlan. They had their first chick, Una, last July. The penguin pair have been checking on their new arrival regularly and sharing the feeding duties. This is an important period of time for the chick to bond with its parents and it is still difficult to see in the enclosure. Gentoo incubation is approximately 38 days.
