Penguin Feeding and Photocall
Please note the penguin photocall is currently not happening due to Covid-19, but penguin feeding by the keepers is happening twice a day. For the latest information on ‘What can I expect on my visit’ due to coronavirus please click HERE
DURING THE SUMMER (Easter to end of October) we have the Penguin Photocall which takes place at the end of the penguin feeding talk sessions.
During the feeding talk, a few lucky children are invited to come in to the penguin enclosure to feed fish to the penguins.
Then at the end of the sessions, visitors are allowed (a couple/family at a time) to sit with and stroke a friendly penguin while another member of the family can take photos – have your camera ready!
Penguin Photocall important note: This is subject to the birds, their breeding seasons and moulting status – we don’t force them to take part so are not able to promise it will always take place. The photocalls can get very busy. Please be aware that once everyone waiting in the queue has been through, the sessions do end.
More about our HUMBOLDT’S PENGUINS
Adult penguins have a dark band of feathers above their chests, along with speckles in the white area below. These speckles are in a unique pattern in each penguin so can help identify individuals. To find our more about our penguins please click here.
