Two Magellanic Penguins Made their Debut at The Aquarium of the Pacific


Do you remember the birth of the two Magellanic Penguin chicks back in June? Then we got to watch them live on the online webcam. Now, for the first-time they made their first steps in the Aquarium of the Pacific for their live debut to the public this week.


The two Magellanic Penguin chicks waddled their first steps to meet all their new animal friends on September 10th. The female is named Heidi, and the public will be invited to help name the male penguin at the Aquarium of the Pacific’s 10th annual Sea Fare fundraiser on October 19th.


The adorable penguin chicks are now on display for families to enjoy watch swimming, diving, and waddling around their habitat. There will also be daily meet-and-greets at the Molina Animal Care Center in celebration of these adorable new penguins moving into the Aquarium.


For a limited-time, the first two people who check in each day on Four Square at the Aquarium of the Pacific, will get to go behind the scenes at the penguin exhibit. If you are planning an upcoming visit, make sure and arrive early to be one of the first to check in on Foursquare for this one of a kind family experience.

The Aquarium is open from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily. Aquarium admission is $25.95 for adults 12+, $22.95 for seniors 62+, $14.95 per child (ages 3-11), and free to Aquarium members and children under age three.
