A Zoo official from Scotland has been training for the London Triathlon in the attraction's penguin pool in a bid to get fit for the event. According to BBC Edingburgh Rob Thomas, Royal Zoological Society of Scotland's conservation and research manager, has been donning a wetsuit to swim with the penguins.
"He has been practicing for the 1,500 meter swim as part of the Olympic sized triathlon ahead of this weekend's London Triathlon."
Mr Thomas said the penguins had been "curious" about their guest.
He has also been training for the running and cycling part of the race on Corstorphine Hill where the zoo is based.
"Corstorphine Hill has proven to be the perfect location for training for all three disciplines, said Tomas.
"As well as running and cycling around the area, taking a dip in the zoo's penguin pool which is the largest outdoor penguin pool in Europe, was just the perfect solution, he added. "As well as excellent training for me in outdoor water, my swims have also provided fantastic enrichment for our extremely curious and friendly penguins."
