June Keyes Penguin Habitat


“The Teenager”

Avery the Penguin

Avery is a very mellow, mild-mannered, young male penguin, but he does have one thing he’s particular about: eating.

Unlike the other penguins, Avery does not like to eat fish straight from his human trainer’s hand. Instead, he will take fish from his feeder and then drop it on the ground to reposition it. Early on, he paired up with Kate, but had to compete with Robbie for her affections. Avery is often the first penguin to play with a new toy or come to a trainer’s hand in the water.
