Taronga Zoo’s Fiordland Crested Penguin, Munro, hopped on the scales this week, allowing keepers to check his weight as he prepares to bulk up for his annual moult.
Taronga’s resident Fiordland crested penguin, Munro, took advantage of the warmer this morning, stepping out for a stroll through the Zoo grounds in preparation for the inaugural Taronga Bird Festival.
A rare penguin that braved a record-breaking 2,000km swim and washed up on a remote beach dying from starvation has not only been successfully nursed back to health, but was this morning introduced to two females of his species and is looking forward to moving into a custom-designed new home at Taronga Zoo.
