The Montreal Biodome has a new addition to the rockhopper penguin family!

Born just a few days before Halloween (October 28, 2021), the baby penguin is a rare addition to the endangered species that is being bred successfully in the only institution in all of North America, as shared on their Instagram page.

According to CTV News, “Rockhopper penguins typically breed in early spring or late summer and lay up to two eggs, with the first, smaller one usually being lost, according to the Biodome. The male and female take turns caring for the eggs and young chicks.”

While we are still unsure of the name of the little guy, we are pleased to know that they are healthy and well!

Like, come on… Doesn’t it get any cuter?!
