DRAPER, Utah (Good4utah)- The Loveland Planet Aquarium has a new baby penguin to show off.
The chick is a Gentoo penguin and was hatched about a month ago.

Officials at the aquarium say it takes just 60 days for Gentoo penguins to reach full size, so those interested in seeing the baby better hurry.

Coco and Gossamer are the proud parents. They took turns sitting on the egg and then continue caring for the chick after it hatched.

The chick fledges—leaves the nest—after about 75 days.

Don’t have a chance to make it to the aquarium? Check out the Penguin Cam for a live stream of the penguins.
