THE HUMBOLDT PENGUINS.

Shows run from Saturday 07th February to Wednesday 11th November 2017 inclusive.

The show times are displayed daily, both at the zoo entrance and throughout the zoo.

    “Peruvia” will lead you to the edge of the sea to admire a colony of penguins in the idyllic surrounding of a little fishing port. Venture from the surface of the huge pool (500m3) down the tunnel to admire the penguins from a huge underwater viewing area. Marvel at the incredible speed of these amazing creatures while they fish both under water and on the surface.

    The Humboldt Penguins are efficient as their wings turn into flippers in the water. This is aided by a powerful muscular alar which allows them to propel themselves whilst swimming, reaching speeds of up to 30km/h.
