Rockhopper Penguin

Staff at the Montreal Biodôme are hopping with joy. Why? On October 28, a rockhopper penguin chick hatched.

No one is more excited than Emiko Wong. She’s the head of the Biodôme’s living collections department.

“I’m a true, true sucker for chicks. They’re just adorable in all kinds of ways and even more so when it’s a penguin.”

Oh, baby!

Why all the squawk over just one chick?
