Having your own blog and Facebook profile are essential in today’s fast moving world – even if you’re a penguin.
Ping is making waves as he is the first penguin in the world to keep an online diary about himself (allegedly).
The African penguin spends much of his time on his own private beach or in the pool, hanging out with his friends Poppet, Shadow and Pip.
Occasionally, they go for a walk around their waterfront home to mingle with the tourists at Torquay’s Living Coasts coastal zoo in Devon.
But, when Ping has some quiet time, he updates his blog at www.livingcoasts.org.uk, mixing gossip from the zoo with interesting snippets about other penguins.
In one of his entries, he writes about a school visit and how he ate rather a lot of fish.
The two-year-old also has his own Facebook profile under Ping At Living Coasts. So far, he has a modest 51 friends. I thought, why not…let’s be friends with a Ping “the penguin”! Do you?
