Penguin


Fact Of The Day – or of the Month, even! It sounds crazy, I know, but the word “penguin” is of Welsh origin!

In Welsh “pen gwyn” means “white head”, which is where we get “penguin” from.

I find that really quite strange, given that penguins come from an entirely different hemisphere to Wales.

Today’s amazing fact is courtesy of Dr Mike Bingham, keeper of the penguin I sponsored, named F-Wit.
