Watch our penguins being fed at 11.30am and 4pm.
Humboldt penguins look very smart in their distinctive tuxedo-like black and white markings. These flightless birds each have a unique pattern of spots on their bellies, which they can be identified by - just like our fingerprints! Humboldt penguins are well-adapted to cold waters, with short waterproof feathers to keep them streamlined underwater.
Humboldt penguins are found off the coast of Chile and Peru, and are named after the cold Humboldt current of the region.
They mate for life, and live together with their partners in huge colonies.
