gentoo chicks Aug. 3, 2011 —Time to learn to waddle! These chicks are two of 59 that have hatched at the Edinburgh Zoo since May 2011. The zoo is home to more than 120 adult gentoo penguins, one of the largest colonies of the species in the world.

The gentoo penguin breeding season begins in March. The penguins usually stay with the same partner and return to the same nest they used in previous years.
