What These Penguins Do For Entertainment Is Very Unusual… I Did NOT See That Coming.
Mature penguins are thinking of finding a mate with the coming of spring and the pairing has already begun at the June Keyes Penguin Exhibit. The young penguins are too young to be thinking of mating and most of the other birds are busy trying to impress the female birds, so a solution for the young birds who were feeling left out was to put an old Ipad in their cage. It’s working and seems to be keeping them very happy. Watch as they play the Game for Cats app. One penguin has a high score of 1600.
The Aquarium of the Pacific is a nonprofit educational institution that provides homes to numerous animals that have been rescued. The staff at the Aquarium is always looking for new enrichment opportunities. They staff is watching for any signs of distress in the penguins playing with the Ipad, but based on their observations, it appears to be very enjoyable for the birds.
