Hello Baby Jackass Penguin! 

Hi folks, today we focus on a baby penguin that hatched out on March 3rd 2009 at the Penguin Pond.
This picture shows the baby about 15 days old.
約10日
Single baby tends to grow faster.

Above picture shows the baby about one month old. At this size, it's somewhat strange to call it a baby.

Penguin staffs of Kobe Kachoen take the baby penguins away from their parents and they rear the babies in order to breed them tame enough for handling activities.
Some might wonder if they are all right apart from their parents, but in fact, when a baby is too big to hide under belly of its parent, the parent often leaves its baby alone and goes out for food.

And, this is the chance for the penguin staff to "kidnap" the baby!
ヒナ取りあげ2
"Hey, where are you going to take me!?"
At first it looked anxious,

but it soon calmed down in the hands of the staff.

It is very difficult to tell the gender of Jackass Penguine by its appearance. Therefore, the Garden puts its blood for a DNA test to find out its gender.
This baby turned out to be a female, suitable gender for handling events.


This picture shows a flipper of an adult Jackass Penguin.

Penguin swims with a pair of this tough flipper. It is also used to fight with others, just like a slap by human. It does hurt when you are hit by the flipper.

Then, what about a flipper of its baby?

It looks soft, and it really is soft. It touches like a piece of velvet.

The baby is kept apart from public for now. The staff is planning to start exhibiting the baby by the end of April. Perhaps it is put in front of visitors earlier than that, depending on the weather and its health, but nobody can predict it.

If nothing goes wrong, we'll focus on reared baby penguin at its food next week.
