Humboldt Penguins

Who are we looking at? A large group of 62 Humboldt or Peruvian Penguins, including oldest resident, Pingu!

Did you know? Humboldt Penguins cool off by extending their flippers and fluffing out the body feathers. They also have spines on their tongues which they use to hold their prey.

Conservation status: Vulnerable, due to destruction of nest sites, overfishing of coastal stocks, environment pollution and the effect of El Ninho.

Feeding Time: 3pm daily.

My Keeper: Luke Millar.
