Rejected baby penguin finds a mom

Caitlin Hume's work doesn't end when she gets home. There is the herring-and-krill formula to prepare, followed by a little peeping and playtime, then bed. For the past few weeks, Hume and fellow New England Aquarium biologist Heather Urquhart have been mothering a Little Blue Penguin that was rejected by its parents after a difficult hatching.
Little Blue Penguins are native to Australia and New Zealand.
