Penguins march around SF Zoo
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- There's a lot of excitement at the San Francisco Zoo today, as the annual "March of the Penguins" paraded through and they were quite well-dressed!
They are the newest penguins who graduated from fish school.
Three 12-week-old penguin chicks were introduced to the colony at the San Francisco Zoo and paraded around as people took pictures of the birds. At first they were a bit hesitant, wobbly and insure of themselves, but the crowd loved it.
"So based on the past several years, they could be anything from playing in the water, to sleeping while floating or getting integrated into the colony right away," zoo keeper Anthony Brown said.
One of the chicks has been named "Floyd" and they will eat about of herring. They usually stay in the water for about 24 hours and zoo keepers hope they come up to the island tomorrow.
