Loro Parque announces arrival of baby penguins

There’s yet another reason to visit the wonderful Loro Parque with the centre’s announcement of the birth of several Papua penguin chicks. The birds, which are known as Gentoo penguins in English, are also called Pingüino de vincha or juanito in Spanish, and are easily identifiable by the white stripe or patch behind their eyes.

The timing of the latest arrivals coincides with the Antarctic summer, and there’s a lovely video here from Loro Parque showing the little ones, who are cared for in turn by their parents, and whose speed beneath the water is already incredible. LP
