Baby animals are my favorite! Either they’re extremely cute or they’re so ugly that they’re cute, but wither way they’re always CUTE!  Although I didn’t know it before today, baby African penguins are right up there with some of the cutest babies.

The Denver Zoo announced the birth of its first African penguin chick in three years.

The chick was born Nov. 10, and while it was smaller than expected, it’s growing “like a weed” and is right on track in its development, the zoo said.

“All three members of this new family are doing well, and Wesson and Sinclair are great first-time parents,” the zoo said.

The chick isn’t available to see just yet. It’s remaining behind the scenes with its parents for the next few weeks.

Here’s a video of the chick to hold you over until the zoo puts it on display…
