Staff at the Maryland Zoo are celebrating the addition of five new fluffy faces joining the African penguin flock in Druid Hill Park.
The Maryland Zoo has been breeding African penguins for nearly 50 years, making them a leader in the effort to maintain the species. In the spring of 2018, a chick named "Millie" became the 1,000th chick born at the zoo . The zoo boasts the largest colony of African penguins in North America, with 90 birds inhabiting the exhibition in Baltimore.
