Three new baby King Penguins for Loro Parque

Loro Parque has announced the birth of three King Penguins, one of which is the daughter of Geisha, rescued in 2003 from a Japanese fishing vessel’s nets. She was at first taken to the Recuperation Centre in Gran canaria before finding a home at Loro Parque. Geisha’s chick is her first after two previous attempts where eggs were infertile, so the Parque is delighted about this success. The King Penguin is the second largest in the world, exceeded only by the Emperor Penguin, and can reach 1m in height, and weigh between 9 and 15 kilos. Canarias7
