New Home For Edinburgh's Penguins

Penguins at Edinburgh Zoo are getting their own mini-water park!

Called Penguins Rock, the attraction has mock sandy beaches and rocky areas, a waterfall feature, a water shoot and a diving board made out of carved rock.

The animals have been getting used to their new environment before it opens to the public tomorrow

Darren McGarry from the Zoo, said: ``We are really looking forward to see the reactions of our visitors as they see our new enclosure and see our famous black and white birds enjoy all its new features - the mock sandy beach, the clear aqua blue water and creative bird themed interpretation - to name just a few of exciting changes.

``However, it is the opportunity to feel so close to the birds due to the new lowered sightlines, and glass barriers and wood perimeters, that we particularly hope people will be thrilled with.''
