|African Penguin Chicks Take Their First Swim|
MYSTIC, Conn. – Mystic Aquarium’s newest African penguin chicks showed off their newfound swimming skills on April 15. The two chicks took the plunge into the Roger Tory Peterson Penguin Exhibit for the first time and were introduced to the public.
The chicks – Blue-Purple, 78 days old on April 15, and Blue-Black, 77 days old – are fully weaned and ready to begin their acclimation to the exhibit and aquarium’s colony of penguins. Many watched the chicks, born on January 27 and 28, grow up over the past two months on the live Web cam at mysticaquarium.org.
