While humans are caged at home, Singapore’s penguins appear to be having the best flippin’ times of their lives during this COVID-19 period.
A waddle’s worth of the flightless birds has been navigating an obstacle course created especially for them to build some muscle in their scrawny flipper feet at Wildlife Reserves Singapore, as seen in footage today of their first encounter with it.
In the minute-plus video that’s been shared several hundred times, the penguins are seen kicking around colorful balls, jumping on logs, and climbing in and out of sandy trenches. Typical Iron Pelican training stuff.
“Our African penguins have taken to their walks so well that their keepers think they would love to explore new areas in our parks. To help them go further in their little adventures, their exhibit has been transformed into an obstacle course, helping them build leg strength!” the zoo wrote in a caption.
The latest video comes weeks after a video of them exploring a children’s playground and fearlessly visiting the sea lion statues went viral.
Your day won’t be complete without seeing this orangutan play with bubbles.
