Repost from @georgiaaquarium using @repostregramapp - it may be chilly outside but this photo of our newest african #penguin chick sure warms our heart! at less than a week old, our veterinary and animal care teams routinely monitor this chick’s growth and health as the first week of any new hatchling is critical. stay tuned for more updates on this season’s chicks!
Repost: @oceans_of_fun - california sea lions are sexually dimorphic meaning that the males look different than the females. check out the size difference between our female california sea lion, geneva, and our male diego!
Repost: @shedd_aquarium - checking in with tyonek! the rescued cook inlet #beluga calf is getting stronger every day at @alaskasealifecenter. these days, his care team plays cook inlet beluga whale sounds under the water twice a day to assess his hearing. he’s curious about the sounds and even mimics them! shedd’s animal response team has been involved in this beluga’s care since he was rescued in october, and we continue to lend a helping hand as he improves.
