Penguins parade scores big with Khao Kheow Zoo euro 2024 flag frenzyLegacy

Khao Kheow Open Zoo in Sri Racha district, Chon Buri province, this weekend marked the current European Football Championship (Euro 2024) by adorning the zoo with national flags from various participating nations while officials wore shirts representing the teams, adding to the festive vibe.

Visitors were treated to a delightful parade featuring over 40 Humboldt penguins. These charming birds paraded, exercised, and engaged closely with the spectators. Tourists had the chance to feed the penguins and take selfies with them, making for a memorable experience.

Zoo staff organised various activities for the penguins, including playing with over 30 colourful balls in the water. This not only provided entertainment for the visitors but also promoted natural animal behaviour and sensory training, taking advantage of the penguins’ keen eyesight, reported Pattaya News.

Two daily showtimes are available for those interested: the first round at 10am and the second at 2pm. Additionally, there are extra shows on Saturdays, Sundays, and public holidays at 3.30pm.
