Visitors to Moody Gardens in Galveston will get the rare opportunity to view a chinstrap penguin chick born in early this month. Only a few other animal habitats in the U.S. feature a newborn chinstrap penguin. They are usually found in the South Sandwich Islands, Antarctica, the South Orkneys, South Shetland, South Georgia, Bouvet Island and Balleny.

The new born chick is being nurtured by both its mother and father. A blood test will be conducted to determine if the newborn penguin is male or female.
