Every morning, 10 adorable northern rockhopper penguins waddle down from their "beach" in the Penguin Exhibit, brought to you by Old Mutual Finance, for a morning swim. We love them, you love them, and it turns out News24 loves them too - that's why they sent a reporter down to ask Two Oceans Aquarium Animal Keeper Shanet Rutgers about the significance of these "waddles" and why they are important for the penguin's health.

Need more penguin waddles in your life? Here are some more of your favourite Aquarium rockhopper moments:


A · WHOLE · NEW · WORLD ������ Every morning, the rockhopper penguins get a chance to explore the Aquarium. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• To keep these little ones exercised, we walk them down from the penguin exhibit upstairs to the outside seal pool where they have a much larger area to swim and clean themselves. We think they like to enjoy the Aquarium exhibits on the way too. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Great clip as always @martineviljoen �� ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #2oceansaquarium #twooceansaquarium #aquarium #animals #capetown #southafrica #cityofcapetown #capetownvibes #meetsouthafrica #capetownbound #thisisafrica #weheartsa #amazingcapetown #lovepenguins #penguinlove #sealife #seabirds #penguinsofinstagram #rockhoppers #behindthescenes
