LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) - The Aquarium of the Pacific is celebrating a pair of newly hatched Magellanic penguins.

Bird keepers tell the Los Angeles Daily News (http://bit.ly/299DNIu ) the chicks hatched in late May in the Long Beach aquarium. They were born to a pair of Magellanic penguins that were rescued off Brazil’s coast five years ago.

The chicks are learning how to swim in shallow pools before they can join the rest of the colony. Since they’re so young, it’s not known yet if they’re male or female. The chicks are expected to make their public debut next month.
