Snow Chick

Season 33, Episode 12 of 16

From the filmmakers who brought viewers the spectacular 3-part miniseries, "Penguins: Spy in the Huddle," comes this intimate and incredible journey of one vulnerable and charismatic Emperor penguin chick, from the moment he emerges from the egg to the moment he leaves for the sea as a boisterous adolescent. His story begins with his father, who's left holding the baby through the long Antarctic winter while his mother is 50 miles away catching fish to feed him. Mom and Dad swap responsibilities until the chick is big enough to take his first steps. His new-found independence in this extraordinarily difficult and dangerous place is filled with humor and danger that will test his parents until the day he leaves them and makes the long trek to the sea without them to begin a life on his own.
