SFWoA penguins take over San Fran Zoo's penguins

Thursday, January 16, 2003 2:22 PM

Pretty strange story I came across about 6 penguins from SFWoA that where sent to SF zoo, they have the rest of the penguins swimming in circles.

Here is another longer article from the UK about them.

It must be an Alpha penguin among those six from SFWOA. It explains everything!

What was the size of the tank in Ohio? The one in SanFan looks really big. I wonder if those penguins from Ohio are feeling "free" and are exercising their freedom by swimming, around, and around, and around, .......................

When you look at the life of a zoo penguin, what choices do they have? Sit on a rock, or swim. Maybe the ones from Ohio like to stay in shape for the upcomming breeding season :-)

My theory. The six new penguins from SFWoa are being bullied by the vetern penguins of the San Fran zoo. This causing the 6 to try and flee for their lives and having the other 46 follow in persuit. California seems to have quite a few 'high speed' persuits so this is nothing new. If anyone taught the penguins to do this it was the news.

Maybe the six from SFWoA told them how nice it was there and are trying to swim their way to Aurora, Ohio? ;)

You see, this is what happens when you let penguins ride a Vekoma SLC.
