Just 33 days old today, this fluffy Rockhopper Penguin chick calls the St. Louis Zoo home. Hatched and initially cared for by its parents, the chick was temporarily moved to a special area after it started living up to its name and dangerously hopping from rock to rock. Apparently climbing rocks can be dangerous, even for a baby Rockhopper. The young chick will be returned to its Penguin & Puffin Coast habitat once its swimming feathers grow-in.
Thanks to ZooBorns reader Katie T. for the heads up
