The Calgary Zoo has announced the hatching of a second penguin egg this year.

A gentoo penguin egg hatched on July 4th. The first egg of the year, also a gentoo, hatched a week earlier on June 27th. Zoo officials says this is an important period of time for the chick to bond with its parents and it’s still difficult to see in the enclosure.

The zoo also had a penguin chick hatch in June last year.
