King Penguin

Hi there, I’m Saskia, a King penguin at this wonderful zoo. I was lucky enough to be raised by one of the keepers when I hatched, and ever since then, we’ve had a special bond. They spent a lot of time with me as I grew up, and I absolutely love being around them. I’m now two years old and still as affectionate as ever, loving nothing more than cuddles and singing songs with my human friends.

You can always count on me to be the friendliest penguin in the colony. I’ll run over straight away to say good morning to everyone, and I’m always happy to be around my keepers. They have my heart completely, and not that they have favorites, but I’m definitely their favorite. Our bond is unique, and we stick together like glue. They were even able to change the band on my wing without me flinching, which shows the trust I have in them.
