Loro Parque – birth of new rare penguin

Loro Parque is cel-ebrating the very first birth- of a Chinstrap penguin chick at Planet Penguin.

The species owes its name to the thin black line that runs from ear to ear under the chin. 

This birth is considered a real success as it is a very delicate penguin and it is quite a challenge to breed this species in a zoo. Isidoro, named after Saint Isidoro, weighed 77 grams at birth after an incubation phase of 38 days. The diet the penguin chick is receiving consists of a formula made with blended fish, very liquid during the first weeks and thicker as the chick grows bigger. To guarantee a balanced diet, different kind of fish are used in the formula that is given to the chick every three hours.  Read full article
