Sydney aquarium penguins get a bubbly Christmas

Video shared by the Sea Life Sydney Aquarium shows Gentoo penguin chicks pecking red and green baubles while the adults, captured in a slow motion video, curiously observe and pop falling bubbles.

The two-month-old Gentoo penguin chicks celebrate their first Christmas and the new enrichment is to expose them to something new and to stimulate their minds, said Kerrie Dixon, Sea Life Sydney Aquarium Penguin Carer.

The penguin chicks colony hatched between early and mid-November, Sea Life Sydney Aquarium said in an emailed statement.
