Hi there, I’m Sheila! I’m a comfortable and sweet penguin who loves hanging out with my favorite biologists. I’ve been causing quite the stir among the males in our colony, as many of them are vying for my affection. I’ve had three mates since I arrived here in 2016, and we’ve successfully raised five chicks together, including our only set of clutchmates. As a mother, I’m very attentive and nurturing, always making sure my chicks are well-fed and cared for.
I’m a bit of a homebody, and I love spending time in my nest box, cuddled up with my chicks. I’m known for being a very successful mother, and my dedication to my chicks is something that the biologists here admire. Despite my gentle nature, I’m not afraid to stand up for myself and my chicks if needed.
Overall, I’m just a happy penguin who loves my cozy home and my family. I may be a bit of a hot commodity in the colony, but at the end of the day, I’m just content to relax and spend time with those I love most.
