A newly hatched emperor penguin has been presented to the public for the first time at an animal park in Shirahama, Wakayama Prefecture, the only facility in Japan that has succeeded in breeding the species, the park’s operator said.

The baby penguin was hatched Oct. 18 using a special incubator at Wakayama Adventure World, one of just two locations in the country that keeps emperor penguins. With the new chick, the park now has a flock of 14 emperor penguins.
