The New Improved Penguin House

The Penguin Post has learned that the penguins at London Zoo are feeling decidedly more p-p-p-pampered after the opening of a new £2 million home.


Their new abode includes a pool which is four times bigger than their previous one, a more natural environment and has underwater viewing areas for visitors. It was constructed when the zoo’s original penguin pool, built in 1934, closed eight years ago after it was deemed not suitable.  Being England’s largest penguin pool, the new enclosure will eventually house a 200-strong breeding colony, but for now 65 lucky penguins have the place to themselves.
