Those naughty penguins are at it again! Last year, we introduced you to a group of penguins from the National Aquarium of New Zealand. As you probably already know, they are out of control. From pushing each other from the pier, stealing one another's dinner, or just being outright obnoxious, these water birds were mercilessly shamed for their deeds on the zoo's Facebook page. However, as you can suspect, it didn't help. These penguins are not planning on fixing their ill ways anytime soon, and, to be honest, we love it! Because not only are they cute, but they are also hilarious! So we couldn't resist but share more of the penguins' crimes and of course, let's celebrate their good deeds too! Scroll below for the list.

"GOOD PENGUIN: Dora

Dora was such a trooper at our regular health checks this month. She waddled straight over to the scales and, with a little helping hand and no fuss at all, popped up to be weighed. If only everybody was as compliant on weigh day as Dora! 

NAUGHTY PENGUIN: Mr Mac

Mr Mac takes the cake (or should we say fish) this month! Can you believe he snatched a fish right out of his girlfriend Lulu’s mouth? Taking food from an almost blind penguin - how could you Mr Mac!"

" PENGUIN OF THE MONTH - APRIL 2019 

NAUGHTY - Martin 

Martin is new to our Penguin Cove (rescued after a predator attack). While he was in our rehabilitation centre he was a bit of a grump (understandably). He’s settled in well, however has become a bit of Casanova – he started to muscle in on Lulu (Mr Mac’s girlfriend) and Draco (Timmy’s girlfriend). Timmy promptly put him in his place, Mr Mac is taking it all in his waddle. We’ve got some tough boys at Penguin Cove so keep your flippers to yourself Martin!

GOOD - Dora 

Dora used to be a bit of princess, demanding a guided escort to the feeding station. She’s now making a real effort, sauntering her own way over. Preferring to dine alone, she waits until the other penguins are done so she gets her keeper's full attention."

" NAUGHTY & GOOD PENGUIN OF THE MONTH - MARCH 2019 

NAUGHTY (kind of!): Because Dave has been partially hand raised, he’s really close to humans and as part of penguin relationship building they like to preen each other. We had one recent gentleman who took part in a Penguin Encounter and had the privilege of Dave preening him. Dave’s very young and doesn’t know his own strength so a few hairs were tugged at on his legs - but our guest thought this was pretty special.

GOOD: Before moulting Burny had been spending a lot of time in her burrow. Now with some lovely new feathers, she’s been taking care of them really well!! She’s spending all day in the water and making a conscious effort to preen and keep them in good condition. Nice work Burny."

Poor Dave.. He's just an undiscovered beauty perfectionist, who was just hinting that guy's legs look better shaved too.. Dave is misunderstood... Unlike Miss Good who is overly obsessed with hier feathers and who's swimming routines are really ruffling the feathers of Good, Bad and in between.. Miss Good needs her mirrors removing..

" PENGUIN OF THE MONTH - FEBRUARY 

It's a mother/daughter duo this month!

Good Penguin of the Month - Pepper

She's been so good at encouraging her boyfriend Tux to go swimming. Tux can be a bit lazy! Good on you Pepper 

Naughty Penguin of the Month - Lulu

Our Lulu has been extra snappy over the last few weeks at feeding time. She obviously needs to learn some good habits off her daughter Pepper!"

So Tux is lazy and a bully. Nice choice, Pepper, nice choice!

" Penguin of the Month - June 2019 

NAUGHTY – Mo

Mo has been a lay-about over the last few weeks! Has sleep ins, and doesn’t get out of bed until feeding time. Penguins normally swim during daylight hours, usually getting up at sunrise. But not our Mo – he refuses to rise before 9.30am, then waddles across to get his food and tries going back to bed. Mo needs to be mindful of his tardy behaviour.

GOOD – Timmy

Timmy’s actually behaving at feeding time! Yes, we were impressed too. He’s not being his usual pushy self and has even restrained himself from flicking sand at the keepers! Basically, he’s been awarded good penguin this month because he hasn’t been naughty LOL! Nice one Timmy."

" PENGUIN OF THE MONTH TIME! 

Good Penguin: ELMO

Elmo, our oldest resident, has been waddling out of her burrow to eat. This is a fantastic effort as we usually provide her with room service. She’s missing a flipper (after getting caught in fishing line when in the wild), is rather elderly at 19 years old (a penguins life span in the wild is about 10 years old) and she has cataracts. We <3 you Elmo. 

Naughty penguin: TUX

Tux has been a right bully lately and has been chasing other penguins around at the feeding station. It’s breeding season, and as his burrow is near the feeding station he’s claimed this area as his territory as well, talk about attitude! Tux does have occasional bullying tendencies and has been in trouble before for pushing Timmy off the pier. He’s a handsome dude, but that’s no excuse - we’ll need to keep an eye on him. "

" Penguin of the Month - May 2019 

NAUGHTY – Dave

Dave just can’t get it together and stay off the naughty list! We take great pride in keeping Penguin Cove clean and tidy. However for Dave this is an opportunity to cause mischief, and as cute as he is, it tends to make this job tricky for our keepers. We’re going to see if we can get some video evidence of him in action so watch this space! 

GOOD – Betty

Our Betty is one of our sweetest penguins and is such a joy! She never lets the hustle and bustle of the other penguins get to her. She goes about her day without putting a flipper wrong. Maybe she’s starting to be a good influence on her boyfriend Mo - who hasn't been on the naughty list for some time!"

Betty seems like a sweetheart. Dave sounds hilarious though. I want footage of him disrupting the keepers while they're cleaning the windows.
