Plenty of fish in the sea

Spruce, A one-year-old Humboldt penguin, is in need of a partner – so to help him out, his handlers have created an online dating profile for him.

The young penguin, who likes to swim and eat fish at Weymouth Sea Life Centre, in Dorset, has found romance hard to find up to now.

The female penguins are already partnered up and, as they mate for life, Spruce has been left single. So with the help of his carer, Sarah Everett, he is trying his luck with online dating – and she fittingly chose Plenty of Fish as the app of choice.

Sarah told the Dorset Echo: “It would be nice for Spruce to have another single penguin to spend his time with rather than his keepers. I really want to see Spruce settle down with the right girl and after searches for potential mates at other Sea Life centres proved fruitless, I thought it was time to look further afield.”
