Penguins prolific at Pueblo Zoo

The Pueblo Zoo's African penguin population has been steadily growing--five penguin babies were born over the winter. They'll soon be on display.

At birth an baby African penguin is only about the size of a golf ball. Now they weigh close to five pounds.

The Pueblo Zoo is having continued success at raising penguins. Last year six babies were born. They're now considered "teenagers" and will soon be moved to other zoos.
