    Default This penguin cutie is only one week old!



    I've already got a soft spot for penguins as is and, added to my love for baby animals, the twofer just melted my heart. I mean this is the teeniest lil penguin I've seen in a while, weighing just 85 grams (three ounces). The adoro chick hatched on March 24 at Chester Zoo in England. Dubbed Aero, he was incubated for 46 days by his parents, Warty and Hislop. The zoo hopes that up to 20 other chicks will be born between now and mid-April, as penguins usually lay a clutch of two eggs (and take turns laying on them) – even Aero has a new sibling yet unhatched! The zoo chose "chocolate-themed" names for all the births near Eastertime. See what sweet snack Aero was named for, and some close up shots of the baby, when you read more.
    Unbeknownst to me, Aero is a Nestlé chocolate introduced in England in 1935, a milk chocolate bar first filled with milky bubbles. They've now got other mouth-watering flavors like caramel (yum!) and mint (double yum!) — I wonder if my pals over at our UK sites could ship some over to me!

    I've tried Aero and found it gross. Practically couldn't eat it and I'm a choco addict.

    The penguin is super adorable! I want!

    I HEART penguins. I want that baby penguin, so I can kiss and squeeze him.
    Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

    I have a friend from Georgia (the ex USSR state, not the US Georgia) and she had worked as a rescuer and kept a penguin in her house for a while. She said it was very social and would lounge in the bathtub but would always get up and run to the door to greet whoever came. And she said that because they would always check from the peephole who it was, the little guy would also press his eye against the door and mimic them (though he didn't reach the peephole). Showed me some pics, it was hilarious, seeing the little guy sitting on a sofa or walking around the house, unsteadily.

    Reminds me of Tommy Boy:

    I'm like Jojo the idiot circus boy with a pretty new pet. Now the pet is my possible sale. Hello there pretty little pet, I love you. And then I stroke it, and I pet it, and I massage it. Hehe I love it, I love my little naughty pet, you're naughty.
