Adam Sandler and family visit the Aquarium

Hollywood actor and celebrity Adam Sandler paid a visit to the Two Oceans Aquarium on the weekend – and brought his family along to enjoy a Penguin Encounter!

Msa took Adam and his family on a long tour of the Aquarium. Adam was very impressed with our aquarium and praised the staff’s professionalism and friendliness. He also had a lot of good things to say about Msa.

The Sandlers did their Penguin Encounter with Senior Bird Trainer Hayley McLellan. “While Teddy the rockhopper penguin was seated on Adam’s knee for a lovely family pic, Teddy took a solid nip at him,” Hayley said.

Adam obviously got a bit of a fright and said, “He bit me!” His daughter replied, “No dad, he just nibbled you ...”

The actor has been in South Africa for the past few months working on a new film with his fellow co-star from The Wedding Singer and 50 First Dates, Drew Barrymore.
