Penguins: Spy in the Huddle, a Nature Special Pres

Growing Up

Season 1, Episode 3 of 3

As their chicks become increasingly independent, emperor and rockhopper parents place them in a creche and go fishing. Humboldt chicks are left in their burrows as the adults head for the beach. As the young grow bigger and preen out baby fluff they sport punk hairdos. Emperor chicks go skating while rockhopper chicks practice jumping skills. Eventually all the chicks leave for the sea, tackling the same hazards as their parents before them, from sea lions to predatory birds, high cliffs to glaciers.
