When visiting Oceanworld, you can identify each individual penguin:
Missy: She is three years old and has a black/white wing band. She is the friendliest bird in Oceanworld and loves people.
Penelope: She has a brown/red/yellow wingband and is four years old. She is the oldest Gentoo penguin at Oceanworld and is a bit shy. She is also a bit greedy even though she is the smallest penguin in the bunch.
Pip: She is 10 months and has a blue/green wingband. She is the baby of the group and very shy and nervous. She does not like to leave the group. You may also notice her white head band. In young chicks the head band does not reach the eyes on either side. Each year the band gets closer to the eye until it eventually reaches the eyes and the rim of the eye turns white.
Fletcher: He is four years old and has a red/brown wingband. He doesn’t like people too much and has a temper. He is known for throwing the odd tantrum.
