MYSTIC, Conn. (WTNH) — The Mystic Aquarium recently welcomed a new member to the family: an African penguin chick.
The chick was born into the colony on Feb. 3 and weighed 94 grams.
Aquarium staff said the fluffy penguin was “very active and peeping loud and strongly.”
On Wednesday, the aquarium released a video montage of how the chick was doing.
It appeared to be growing strong and adapting to its new home.
Staff told News 8 that they will be naming the chick and releasing its gender soon.
