Penguin-chain? #PenguinsMIA @natzoo

Dear friends and other interesting creatures –

The parents of a young boy celebrating his birthday party at Pretoria Zoo, had erected a jumping castle next to the penguin enclosure to entertain his friends. During the fun and games, four penguins formed a penguin-chain and climbed out of the enclosure, using the jumping castle as a launch-pad to make their escape. They were last seen in a large enclosure reserved for the lemurs, aptly entitled ‘Madagascar’.

Anyone with sightings of the four birds is asked to contact the zoo-keeper immediately or tweet @NocturnalWenchy !!!

I wish we could dance like penguins.

Something fishy? … @natzoo #PenguinsMIA

Dear friends and other interesting creatures,

It seems the penguins are in the news this week, with yet another report hot off the press. ‘Elijah, would’ you believe that reports are coming in of penguins literally putting their beaks up at the fish being offered to them for their daily meal – the same fish that they have been enjoying day in and out in the past. Some of the birds were also spotted with strange orange stains around the beak and throat area, and are being monitored closely by their keepers.

Strange behaviour in penguin enclosure… #penguinsMIA @natzoo

Dear friends and other interesting creatures,

Zoo-Photo-Suitcases-Alert-1

The curator in charge of the penguins at the Pretoria Zoo, has reported some rather unusual activity in the birds’ enclosure today. It appears that some of the penguins are on the move – four small suitcases were spotted near the exit, and some of the black-and-white birds were seen sporting colourful summer hats. This behaviour is most unusual and cannot be explained at this stage. However, a highly-trained team of secret agents has been posted near the enclosure to keep an eye out for any further movement.

We will keep you posted on any further developments…

Do we have #penguinsMIA?
