Need help getting through your #humpday? Perhaps a behind-the-scenes penguin chick picture will do the trick. We’re happy to announce the name: Maq. We also recently determined the sex of the chick: it’s a girl!

As you can see, she has very few down feathers left. She is being left with other adults, unsupervised during the day. She is hand feeding from staff and swimming. At some point she’ll be on exhibit!

What’s life like for our penguin chick behind the scenes right now? We’ll warn you. It’s pretty rough.
