Bored And Lonely Zoo Penguins Gifted A Bubble Machine


Newquay Zoo decided to cheer up its penguins with some bubbles.

The lockdown restrictions in Cornwall prevented the penguins from keeping up their usual routine. Staff wanted to keep the birds entertained when someone donated a bubble machine to the zoo.
