African penguin Reproduction: House Hunting

You may have noticed some of our penguin pairs shopping for new real estate. We have several new pairs that are looking for a permanent nestbox, as well as some established pairs that are thinking about changing their address. Some aggression between pairs and individuals is normal during this time.
Eventually, members of the colony will establish their ownership of specific  nesting sites within the exhibit.-Vikki McClosky

  1. These guys & gals are hilarious! The squabbling today is fascinating….how do I adopt some as my new pets?? (Just kidding, of course).

    Is it mating time right now? When can we expect some eggs & chicks?
