||Piran, a male Humboldt penguin, was born at Weymouth SEA LIFE Centre in July 2009 and is the brother of Gilbert. He arrived at the Cornish Seal Sanctuary on 30th March 2010 and is the opposite of Gilbert, as he is very shy, and tends to hang at the back of the group during feeding time. Piran is a fussy eater, inspecting both sides of his fish before deciding if they are good enough to eat! |
Piran´s wing band colour is pink.
The other resident penguins:- Ivy (black band), Gilbert (green band), Pine (purple band),

Each penguin has a different coloured tag to be able to tell them apart.
Male penguins have a coloured band on their right wing and females on their left wing.
