Two new penguin babies hatch at Santa Barbara Zoo.
Sheri Horiszny

Two Humboldt penguin chicks hatched recently at the S.B. Zoo (500 Niños Dr.). Though the two share the same parents, the chicks arrived about one month apart in April and March and are being housed off-exhibit for the next few weeks until they learn to swim. For updates on the baby penguins’ progress, visit or call 962-5339 for more info.
