Why sleep alone when you can sleep with the neighbour kids: Sleep-over in the penguin colony.
Yellow-eyed penguins are said to be the least colonial and least social of all penguins but maybe it is because they are so rare. We have quite a high density of nests in our colony and so the chicks grow up near each other. When all the parents are gone for the day they quite like to go next-door and hang with the kids there: typical for other species, not seen that often in this one! Very cute!
