The Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach welcomed some new critters this summer. Toby, a harbor seal pup, was born in May, and two Magellanic penguin chicks were hatched a month later. These babies have grown up a bit, enough to be ready to greet visitors this month at the aquarium. Toby joined his new public home Aug. 14, and the chicks are slated to follow suit in the next few weeks.
