Photo of the day: Fuzzy penguin chick makes debutA baby Magellanic penguin — born on May 28 — makes his debut on June 14 at a press preview at the Sumida Aquarium in Tokyo. Magellanic penguins are found by the millions along the coasts of Argentina, Chile and the Falkland Islands, but they are classified as “near threatened” due to oil spills off the coast of Argentina. Their large breeding colonies are vulnerable to the spills, which kill tens of thousands of adult and juvenile penguins every year.
