There is a funny story with this penguin :)
This was in Belfast zoo. We were visiting with my husband and he had a map of the zoo in his hand. For some reason he touched the glass with the map and the penguin reacted immediately by trying to byte the paper through the glass. His beak hit the glass in effortless tries. It was sooo funny! :) Where ever my husband put the map the penguin followed. This went on for a while and there was a crowd starting to gather behind us. At one point another person decided to have a go at this fun game and took his car keys, put close to the glass and showed them to the penguin. I am telling you – the expression on that penguin’s face was priceless when he saw the keys!!! His eyes went big and he swam quickly away. It was almost like he was thinking: what the hell is this! Hahaha
Times like these I would really want to know what and how animals think :D
