ST ANDREWS Aquarium have appealed to the p-p-p-people of Scotland this week to help them name their waddle of four female Humboldt penguins, who have remained nameless since their arrival in St Andrews at the end of last month.

St Andrews Aquarium is looking for the best p-p-p-picks that Scotland can think of and the winner will not only see their penguins p.p.p.perfectly appointed with new names but will be the first member of the public to adopt a penguin from the coastal attraction, receiving adoption certificate number 001.

The Humboldts arrived from the Seaview Wildlife Encounter in the Isle of Wight, and have already attracted large crowds since their arrival just four weeks ago. Their enclosure has a viewing platform where you can see the penguins swimming underwater, as well as underwater viewing windows, a feature that is unique to St Andrews Aquarium.

John Mace, manager of St Andrews Aquarium, commented:

“Over the coming weeks we are asking for a bit of help from our friends to help name our four penguins. We have had lots of suggestions coming in from visitors when they are here at the aquarium so we thought it would be a great idea to get everyone involved! We can only p-p-p-pick once!”

You can enter your favourite penguin names here until the competition closes at midnight on Monday 8th July:
