New Baby Penguins at Cal Academy: Help Us Name Them!

Penguin_Chick_KAW-0181 800

We've got three, adorable baby penguins on display starting today at the California Academy of Sciences. They've been kept in quarantine for a couple of months as we get them ready to be on public display. You can learn more about how we do that in this short video.


I got to check out all three this morning. The two older ones have already lost all of their baby fuzz and basically look like all the other penguins, just a little smaller. The youngest one at 4 months old still has some fuzz left on him, as you can see in my pic below.

Come check them out in African Hall! And you can participate in the penguin naming contest here!
