Warsaw (AFP) – A rare three-month-old albino penguin made its first public appearance at a zoo in the Polish Baltic port city of Gdansk, where its keepers claim it is the only one of its kind in captivity.
The all-white African black-foot penguin was born on December 14, but zoo staff decided to keep its arrival secret as they were unsure the vulnerable newborn would survive.
Zoo staff are waiting until they are able to determine its sex to name the youngster.
“As far as we know, there is no other such specimen alive (in captivity) in the world,” Michal Targowski, director of the Gdansk Zoo, told the TVN24 commercial
