My wife and I were members of the Denver Zoo for years.  It was mostly because we loved to visit the new babies every year.  I still remember when Klondike and Snow, the baby polar bears, were born. Now the Zoo some new babies.

Denver Zoo recently welcomed a trio of penguin chicks, representing two different species. Two African penguins hatched on January 28th and February 11th, and a Humboldt penguin hatched on February 14th.

The public may now see the two African penguin chicks in their outdoor habitat, as long as the weather isn’t too bad. The Humboldt penguin chick is still being raised behind-the-scenes by its parents. We still don’t know if they are boys or girls, and they have not been named. Denver Zoo sent us a few pictures to share with you.
