I thought I'd pass along this morning pick-me-up, from the folks at SeaWorld San Diego:

Penguin chicks, from SeaWorld San Diego

That's two of the 12 macaroni penguin chicks born at SeaWorld San Diego this breeding season, the most ever at the park. SeaWorld's hatched nine other baby penguins this season, including Adélie and gentoo chicks. Since 1980, more than 500 penguins have been hatched and raised at the park's Penguin Encounter exhibit.

So cute, love baby animals. I go to the local zoo a lot. And that is the first thing I always check. Last time i was there they had a 2 month old ocelot (wild cat) and 2, 6 month old white tigers.

The babies are absolutely adorable! Thank God for places like you that hatch and raise penguins.
