The African Penguins are located in the African Savanna Section of the Toronto Zoo

 

African Penguins [Spheniscus demersus] are also called "Black-footed" or "Jackass" penguins so named for the braying sound of their call.  They are native to the waters of southern Africa.  

Just like other animals with spots and stripes, each penguin has its own unique pattern of spots, just like our human fingerprints.

African Penguins are monogamous which means that penguins have a sort of "marriage" and have only one spouse during their lifetime. Pairs of penguins bond and return annually to the same breeding site.  Penguins live in "colonies".  Their average lifespan is 10 - 27 years, living longer in captivity.

In the wild, African Penguins eat fish, squid and crustaceans.  In the images below, the zookeeper is feeding the penguins Capelin and Smelt fish.

Beautiful Birds

 

 

 

 


"The reason birds can fly 
and we can't 
is simply because 
they have perfect faith, 
for to have faith 
is to have wings."
