Meet Pablo!

Pablo the Gentoo penguin is a notoriously cheeky and curious bird who loves nothing more than to make new friends and cause some mischief with his keepers!

In new exhibit Penguin Ice Adventure you can come face-to-flipper with Pablo and his colony of Gentoo Penguin pals and adventure into the rarely seen Antarctic landscape. Marvel at his cheeky antics, as he dives beneath the freezing waters and plays with his feathered friends in their icy home.

With indoor temperatures of 8 degrees Celsius you’ll need to wrap up warm, although the playful penguins will feel right at home. Hear the unmistakable trumpeting sound of the Gentoo and learn about their quirky antics.

Touch the iced environment that the penguins call home and give your best imitations of a penguin waddle.

Our penguins, which are classified as near-threatened on the IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) Red List, have travelled half the way around the world to play and swim in their brand new, specially built home.

To help fill the giant 70 000 litre icy tank that the penguins call home, the centre drafted in the help of the West Midlands Fire Service and Severn Trent Water!

Though they are birds, penguins have flippers instead of wings.

They cannot fly and on land they waddle walking upright—though when snow conditions are right they will slide on their bellies.

In the water they are expert swimmers and divers, and some species can reach speeds of up to 15 miles per hour.

Other species such as Emperors, Kings and Gentoos live in one of the coldest, harshest places on the planet; Antarctica!
