Penguins at The Royal Zoological Society of Scotland (RZSS) Edinburgh Zoo took part in 'Penguin Awarness Day' on Saturday, playing with soapy bubbles made by a new bubble-making machine.

The penguins received the bubble machine as a Christmas gift via an Amazon wishlist set up for their animals, said Edinburgh Zoo.

Over 130 birds spent the day chasing and popping bubbles, while some of them looked on, apparently bemused.

RZSS Edinburgh Zoo houses the largest outdoor penguin pool in Europe, the zoo website states.

They help with penguin conservation around the globe, currently working on Project Pinnamin, a collabroative piece of research into the northern rockhopper.
