Ocean Park has unveiled the first king penguin born under its breeding programme. The chick was born on December 16 but it will take months before park staff know whether it's male or female. Penguins shed their non-waterproof down after four to six months. Only then will it be caught and a blood test carried out in order to identify its sex. Photo: AFP

First off in the Polar Adventure corner was the first-born of two young king penguin parents, weighing in at six kilograms.
