It's always something magical when a new species is brought to life in an area. Speaking of new species, the Bronx Zoo surely has something big to brag about these days.

For the first time in its 120 year history, they just had THIS little guy hatch!

Named for their size, this penguin species, is called a fairy penguin.

They grow to merely one foot tall and weigh a minimum of two or three pounds. Can you imagine?! I could just snuggle one right now!

This little newborn has already grown significantly. When the zoo officials weighed him two months after he hatched, he weighed only 44.5 grams. Aww!

Check out the video below to see this little cutie in action. I promise, you're going to fall in love REALLY quick!

Seriously, can you get enough?!
