TENNESSEE – A rare baby penguin is on display at Ripley’s Aquarium of the smokies in Gatlinbug, Tennessee.
The new African Black footed penguin is about two months old and weighs around five pounds.
Right now he is being kept away from the main penguin exhibit. He will join the other 34 penguins in the next month or two.
This is the second baby penguin born at Ripley’s Aquarium.
Another neat fact, African penguins are considered an endangered species.
