Audubon Aquarium has a brand new baby African penguin. It's the first chick for parents Ritz and Saltine, officials say.

  • The chick is in the nest with its parents, who are taking turns caring for it and keeping in warm.

What's next: Audubon is testing the penguin's shell to determine its sex before it's named.
