WATCH: Penguins enjoy some bubble fun at RZSS Edinburgh Zoo


RZSS Edinburgh Zoo’s penguin colony had great fun celebrating Penguin Awareness Day last weekend with their new bubble machine!

The group enjoyed chasing and popping bubbles made by the machine, which they received as a Christmas gift.

Lorna Moffat, penguin keeper at RZSS Edinburgh Zoo said: “Our colony of over 130 birds enjoy lots of different types of enrichment, from their water slide to their floating platforms, but the bubble machine is always a firm favourite so getting a new one is fantastic.”

Penguins are my favorite animal so naturally I had to watch this. Really cute yet funny when you see them all trying to peck the bubbles in mid air. Did you know a group of penguins is called a raft of penguins?
