Two Magellanic Penguins were born one month ago at the aquarium's June Keyes Penguin Habitat to first time parents Floyd and Roxy. They will be on public display late this summer, but for the time being can be viewed below, on the penguin webcam.
The Aquarium of the Pacific website says that Magellanic Penguins are native to the coasts of Argentina and Chile. During the incubation period of the penguin eggs, which takes between 38 and 43 days, each parent takes turns incubating the eggs. When they hatch, the adorable things aren't able to open their eyes for an entire week.
After about 90 days, Magellanic Penguins "fledge," or replaced their newborn feathers with adult feathers, which are water-tight. After these Aquarium of the Pacific penguins fledge, they will be on display with their older peers.
Until then, watch the wonderful live penguin webcam below. (If you get an error message below, head here.)
