African penguins are an endangered species, thanks to oil spills, hunting and the destruction of their habitat. But the good news is that there's now one more of them in the world. The Minnesota Zoo has announced that it hatched its first African penguin chick on March 2. As the little critter's gender hasn't been determined, it doesn't have a name yet. It's being raised behind-the-scenes by foster parents because its biological parents weren't incubating its egg consistently. Despite that, the chick is growing fast: from 2.4 ounces at birth to over 1 pound, 6 ounces. [Source]
