Recently, Tulsa Zoo was excited to announce a new addition to our African penguin colony!
The adorable baby penguin was born to parents Dassen and Ireland on October 3, a genuine Libra. The Tulsa Zoo’s work with the Association of Zoos & Aquariums African Penguin Species Survival Plan includes the birth of the chick.
The baby penguin looks a bit like a chicken when it’s just born, but with its distinctive gray plumage, the young penguin quickly proves it’s not a chicken!
According to the news of Tulsa Zoo, the penguin chick weighed 60 grams at birth. The chick’s gender has not yet been disclosed.
The baby penguin is now well cared for and even has a stuffed penguin pal!
