As a fine gift for Christmas, the mall has announced the hatching of an endangered African Black Footed Penguin chick. This chick is quite the achievement for the mall for a couple of reasons. Firstly, it is the first penguin chick to hatch at the mall in over 6 years. As well, it is also the first second generation mall born bird, as its father, Bam Bam, was born at West Edmonton Mall as well. Finally, it has also been completely parent raised, which is quite the achievement in its self for these first time parents ! See here for some more info on the chick and for a video.
