Viral Video: Dallas Zoo's Baby Penguin's First Swim

By Robert Paul Reyes

Adorable penguin Marina takes her first plunge into the penguin pool. This 5 pound, 3-month-old chick is a natural! Marina`s parents, Tulip and Tazo, also joined in for a dip. You know what they say... the family who swims together, stays together.


YouTube video description

Not all of the viral videos that I feature are of  cute kittens or adorable puppies; today`s video stars a baby penguin taking her first swim under the watchful eyes of zookeepers and her proud parents.

It`s a memorable day in a family when a baby takes its first steps, and it`s an eventful day in a zoo when a penguin takes its first swim.

The baby penguin`s parents joined Marina for her rite of passage swim in the penguin pool. Enjoy:
