Penguin chicks learn how to swim (video)

Global News
You may think that penguins take to water just like fish but learning how to get their happy feet wet is something that doesn’t come naturally.

At the Maryland Zoo, the penguin keepers Maria and Crystal helped African Penguin chicks Volta and Hopper get used to the water by easing them into a bath. When it comes time for a proper swim, the babies don’t take to water like ducks – in fact they don’t seem to like it at all. Fortunately the zoo keepers are there to dry them off and feed them a fishy snack. Hopefully, the penguins will catch on to the art of swimming soon.
