Wiener Tiergarten, Schoenbrunn ist wunderbar! Vienna Zoo in Schoenbrunn - a wonderful place full of Penguins (There could be found another animals, too:)). Some people say for me it was a reason to go to Vienna. Not at all, but...

I can't get the video to embed for some reason, but here's a link to a penguin's first swim.

robinwest sent me the Chicago Tribune article on how giant penguins may once have roamed in Peru, and ladykoori sent me the illustrated Discovery Channel version (pic copied above). It's probably a good thing they're extinct or my son would want to move to Peru to get one as a pet!

This is the penguin I got my obsessed son as a gift after his violin recital, instead of flowers. It was a very popular choice. *g* I found it at a local Hallmark store.

From CNN, "Penguins start rockin' when stones arrive" -- the Gentoo and Rockhopper penguins at Chicago's Shedd Aquarium, getting busy for mating season by building nests.

Also, my uncle sent this eggplant penguin picture to me. Apparently it is from Food For Thought!

Our family took a trip to England and Wales, staying mostly in the vicinity of Bristol, during the course of which we visited four zoos with penguins. The highlight was a visit to Dudley Zoo where our younger son got to meet the chicks of the penguin a friend had "adopted" there for him. Here are some of the photos:

My local news station had a story about a baby penguin needing spinal surgery at the Maryland Zoo. We have met many of the penguins there, possibly including his parents. Here is a photo from the news service:

An refreshing news comes from London Zoo a day before valentine's day.
One of their rockhoppers, Roxy, published a myspace in search for love.

She's a cute rockhopper, she doesn't have the diva attitude though she's a world-class celebrity, and she lovingly admitted have a body type of 33cm with some extra bagage. You can say, she keeps her head down to earth.
You can check her out and (if you have a myspace account) invite her as a friend at http://www.myspace.com/roxyrockhopper  

Hopefully, this breakthrough from Roxy will encourage more people to fall in love to Roxy and her endangered relatives out there!!
