An Adele penguin chick is born with an insulative layer of feathers thats molted as they prepare to enter the sea. Its a critical period for the chicks as they have to learn to fish well enough to survive on their own and must depend on stored body fat for a time. With warming temperatures, theyre exposed more to freezing rain than snow which wets down their insulating layer. Many chicks dont make it. Antarctica.

Yellow-eyed penguin chicks wait on land for their parents to return with food. The chicks are usually down-free by three months but stay for another 2 weeks being fed by the parents before they fledge.

"Happy Feet"
The Jacksonville Zoo recently announced the hatchings of two Magellanic Penguins, one on July 30th and August 7th. These photos are of the youngest chick at 10 days old and the oldest chick at 17 days old. Unlike the previous two, CJ and Sharky, these chicks are being successfully raised by their parents. In wild, these birds are from the South American coasts of Argentina, Chile, Falkland Islands, and sometimes Brazil. Fortunately, they are not endangered in the wild but their close relatives, African Penguins, are. The AZA is partnering with conservation groups in South Africa to help protect their nesting and feeding grounds.

Olhos grandes e doces, feições suaves: os filhotes realmente sabem deixar um adulto encantado. Esses filhotes de pinguim-antártico (Pygoscelis antarcticus) com alguns dias de vida não são excessão! 💙 Reparem que eles ainda tem o "dente do ovo" na ponta do bico, que é uma estrutura utilizada pelos filhotes para quebrar a casca dos seus ovos e sair para o mundo. Esse dente desaparece alguns dias depois do nascimento.

Did you know that Emperor penguins can reach depths of over 500m and stay underwater for up to 22 minutes?

Today our two penguin chicks, Agnus (right) and Augustus (left) were introduced to the rest of the flock for the first time! They were born at the end of April, and today was their first day exploring their new home. They were a little apprehensive at first, but were soaring through the water in no time. Welcome to the flock, Agnus and Augustus!
