The first California condor conceived in captivity has been moved to larger quarters so it can grow up in contact with other members of its nearly extinct species, San Diego Wild Animal Park officials say.

The chick, named Molloko, weighed 63/4 ounces when it hatched April 29. It weighed 3 pounds, 12 ounces when it was moved Saturday from an "infant isolette" to a sand-floor pen in the park's "condorminium," spokesman Tom Hanscom said.The chick is in excellent health and "has become very active, performing a behavior called hop-flapping which causes it to bounce around in the isolette a bit," Hanscom said.

"We're seeing behavioral development which would indicate a perfectly healthy bird both mentally and physically," he said.
