JoJo, the King Penguin, Arrived at Taipei Zoo

There is a new king penguin named “JoJo” arrived Taipei Zoo on March 7. He came from the National Museum of Marine Biology and Aquarium, and will begin his new life at the Animal Quarantine Center.

The Taipei Zoo hopes that JoJo will find his half apple in the coming mating season, and raise their chicks together. It will increase the genetic diversity of the king penguin group, said zoo director Jason Yeh in a statement.

JoJo likes to swim so much that he jumped into the pool immediately when he arrived the Animal Quarantine Center. He will join the big family after one month quarantine, and visitors will be able to meet him at the Penguin House in Taipei Zoo.
