Keeping over 200 playful and intelligent penguins entertained can be a challenge, but keepers at Edinburgh Zoo are experts at penguin enrichment. This week they treated the penguin colony to a shower of bubbles from the popular bubble making machine. During a snowfall our penguins will chase snowflakes and try to catch them, in much the same way as they do with the bubbles.
I found Sparky barely clinging to life, laying on a pile of other hatchlings that had all fallen from a height of about 8 feet onto concrete and died. Sparky is 2 years old now and he is the most energetic and curious pet I have ever had. He’s really smart too.
