Aquarium of the Pacific recently had their public unveiling of two young Penguin chicks: a male and female, both were hailed with excitement from the staff and the press a like for this momentous and fun event. They waddled forth from the hatching area to the main Penguin display to all in attendance pleasure. They were adorable and ready to make their break into their new home. Their arrival in the display area was a in a tumultuous fashion by most of the adult Penguins but you’ll notice in the photo gallery that the mother of them both noses in to assure their safety and acceptance to the group. The female, Heidi, has been named by a generous donor with the anticipation of another generous donor helping to name the young male by October 19th. For information and to purchase tickets, the public can visit www.aquariumofpacific.org/seafare or call (562) 437-FISH.
It was a lovely morning for the wondrous event. It was surprising how quickly both baby Penguins took to the water swimming about with great speed and zeal. A bunch of the older Penguins squawked and bellowed as the two young penguins darted gleefully in the tank. It was a marvel to behold and truly enchanting as nature took it course. I highly recommend you take the time to stroll by the exhibit with your next visit at the Aquarium of the Pacific.
