Four fuzzy Egyptian goslings hatched recently at Cleveland Metroparks Zoo and guests can see them waddling around their exhibit in the African Savanna area. The first three chicks hatched on May 11, followed by the fourth on May 12, which means in these photos they are only four to five days old!
Egyptian geese are native to Africa and the eastern rim of the Mediterranean Sea. They live in marshes, lakes and other wetlands. Adult Egyptian geese are easily identifiable by the chestnut-colored patch on their chests.
The goslings will measure between 24 and 28 inches and weigh about 4.5 pounds when they are fully grown.
