Humphrey all grown up!

Humphrey was hand reared by our Animal Keepers last year and was born with a curvature of the spine. Despite all our concerns for Humphrey he has proven to be a fighting fit penguin and is looking especially proud and handsome since coming through his first moult!

It's a shame however that the same can't be said for Dippy!

Although he has finally come through his annual moult, it seems our Dippy, like many of our other penguins, is a little reluctant to go into the water and put his new waterproof feathers to the test. Hopefully he will have had a good wash off ready for his trip on the hover craft on Monday!
