Additions to Ocean's Crib

More new cute arrivals! A male-bonded penguin couple are raising a Humbolt penguin chick at the Santa Barbara Zoo after previous failed attempts at having the adult Humbolt penguins rear their own offspring. Male-bonded penguin pairs have successfully raised chicks at several zoos, inspiring the children’s’ book “And Tango Makes Three”.

Just as baby birds have to learn how to fly, newborn sea lions must be taught to swim. Check out the Pittsburgh Zoo’s youngest pup at an early swim lesson.
