Tish Hannan, Penguin Department Supervisor at Sea Life Sydney Aquarium was quoted to a news report, "Baby Sphengic has already stolen our hearts! We love watching the proud parents doting and taking turns caring for their baby chick. With that said, the first 20 days of a penguin chick’s life are the most vulnerable so it is extra important the chick is very happy, healthy and well fed by his parents."
The tiny penguin took about three days to fully crack from its egg. It will be kept with the dad for the next 5-6 weeks, before it takes its first swimming lessons. The baby is healthy right now and very soon guests will also be able to visit the aquarium and see the baby.
