Humboldt penguin

By oldgreyheron      
There was a pleasant colony of Humboldt penguins in a well-kept enclosure at the Cotswold Wildlife Park. This one was happily swimming and diving. They normally live close to the coast in Peru and Chile. Interesting fact: Humboldt penguins have a gland which enables them to drink salt water in addition to fresh water; this gland concentrates excess salt which then dribbles down the bill.
