Happy Hatchdays

Get ready to celebrate – we have some gentoo penguin hatchdays to share!

Today ‘Aurora’ turns 20 and ‘Cooper’ turns 15, while ‘Falkland’ turns 22 on December 30th!

Did you know that gentoo penguins are distinguished by the white patch around their eyes? The white eye patch is not connected to their white eye rings until their first moult, which happens around 14 months of age.

Happy hatchday to Aurora, Cooper, and Falkland!
