African penguins have implemented a chick that had trouble hatching, & then wasn't being minded for by its biological parents at another Colorado zoo.
Officials of the Denver Zoo said that the chick's new home, say it's doing well. The baby African penguin appeared from its shell at the Pueblo Zoo on March 20, but it was 2 days overdue & required some help from a staff worker to get outside.
When the biological parents come out unable to care for the hatchling, it was taken to Denver & placed with surrogate parents, who instantly start to feed it & keep it warm. African penguins once came close to loss & are listed as "vulnerable" by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature & Natural Resources.
