Gentoo Penguin

Hi, I’m Leo, one of the most outgoing and brave penguins in our colony. I’m always the first to give anything a try, whether it’s a new toy or a new food. I’m very curious and adventurous, and I love exploring my habitat and meeting new people.

One of my favorite things to do is photo bomb my keepers, especially during our team Christmas photo! I also love getting belly scratches and spending time with my human friends. I’m always approachable and love to approach people to say hello.

Every morning, I follow my keeper around while she cleans our habitat, and I even helped her achieve her own penguin march badge by getting her steps in! I’m a playful and friendly penguin who brings joy to everyone around me.
