Hey, were you talking to me? Actually, this African blackfooted penguin is probably looking for an afternoon snack. Penguins consume 14% of their body weight daily. For a human, that’s like eating 21 pounds of food!
What do our African blackfooted penguins do for fun? In this photo, Tola plays with some plastic hoops in an “enrichment” activity—one of many designed to keep our animals stimulated and healthy. You can see them in the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Splash Zone exhibit!
