Stones are a valuable commodity for Gentoo penguins. They build their nests with a ring of stones lined with feathers and moss. As a gesture of courtship, the male Gentoo can present the female with the smoothest, roundest pebble he can find. If she accepts, she will add it to the nest and they will breed together for a number of years. As you can expect there is a lot of squabbling over pebbles amongst penguins...

Vår eldste kylling er 2 uker gammel i dag, og veier nå hele 664 gram! 👏👏👏 Den fikk smake på sin første kutling, og den glei rett ned! 🤗 Når en pingvinkylling er over 500 gram begynner vi å tilby den en pitteliten fisk på fôringen og vil øke størrelsen på fisken i takt med at kyllingen blir større. 🐟 Dette er rett og slett bare for at den skal bli vant til å få mat fra oss dyrepassere. 🤗 Foreldrene vil fortsette med å fôre den til den er 3-4 måneder gammel. 🥰 Men det er ikke alltid like lett for en kylling å skjønne at det er på tide å skaffe maten sin selv, så når den tiden kommer vil det gjøre overgangen for dyrepasserene, foreldrene og ikke minst kyllingen mye lettere. 🥰🐧💕 Vi har nå 3 pingvinkyllinger i dammen, hver dag kl: 14:00 kan du bli med å se når kyllingene veiies! 🐣🐣🐣 #Penguin#PenguinChick#Gentoopenguin#Gentoo#GentooChick#Akvariet#Bergen#AkvarietiBergen#BergenAquarium

Gentoo penguins on film from March, Sea Lion Island - the Falklands 🎞 #35mm
We are delighted to announce the arrival of a penguin chick, weighing in at 90g to proud parents Brian and Diane. Due to the number of eggs Diane laid the decision was made to foster this one out to experienced parents Nessie and Shackleton to give it the best care possible. After hatching they are cared for by the parents in the nest, you maybe lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the chick being fed. Caring for a baby penguin is a challenging job but we are hopeful that this little one will go from strength to strength. #babypenguin#penguinchick#penguin#gentoo

Waddling Gentoo Penguin at the penguin Highways, Danco Island
Long time no post...🙃
(Sorry but I had to learn some life lessons, no time for coding lessons 😁)
I'm on holiday at the moment and I definitely have too much free time.
Over the last few months I didn't have energy to do anything in my free time (actually I didn't have much free time), so I'm a bit overwhelmed by that much freedom at the moment.
I'm pretty good at doing (more or less) useless stuff tho: I discovered about ten (or rather 20 🤔) completely useless (but funny 😁) Emacs packages, I started reading Mangas again, I configured basically everything on my laptop (for example, you can't have too many key bindings, right?)...Luckily I got rid of my nethack addiction. Thanks to @paulagoesgreen I'm now addicted to WoW 😐
I know it's not really that useless, especially as long as it's fun. But somehow, even though I'm enjoying it, I always feel as if I'm wasting time 🤦♀️
Do you know that feeling too? What do you do against it? .
