King Penguins


Introducing ‘Alfred’

January 20, 2023 | 1 minute read

Hear ye, hear ye! We have a most important announcement to make. The youngest prince in the waddle has a new moniker fit for a king (penguin)! It’s our great honour to introduce you to his royal highness, ‘Alfred’.

This egg-cellent news comes during the first full week of the annual Penguin Walk, which sees members of the king penguin colony head out onto zoo grounds for a daily winter enrichment walk. The young prince is easily identified within the waddle by his “cloak” of thick brown down, which stands out against the black and white “tuxedos” of his loyal entourage.
