Dorset Echo: Penguins on World Book Day at Weymouth Sea Life Park Penguins on World Book Day at Weymouth Sea Life Park

DO you want to see a penguin reading a book?

The colony of Humboldt penguins at Weymouth Sea Life Adventure Park enjoyed a story on World Book Day read by staff member Sarah Lawrence.

Their story, ‘Sharing a Shell’ by Julia Donaldson, tells the adventures of Crab the hermit crab, Blob the anemone and Brush the bristleworm.

Starburst, Web and Smartie the seals at Weymouth Sea Life also enjoyed a version by aquarist Lauren Timson during their daily feed and enrichment.

Do you really, really think that the penguins enjoyed the interaction? They waited there in the anticipation that they would get fed!
They only have bird-brains.
