If ever there was a bird that makes you think of snow, chances are that bird is a penguin.

However, not all penguins are fans of the cold, white stuff, as the penguins at Great Yarmouth’s Sea Life centre go to show.

The resident penguins at the centre on Marine Parade are Humboldt penguins, usually natives of the hotter climates of South America.

In order to keep them safe and sound form the Beast from the East, keepers at the centre have erected special shelters for them to help them huddle together for warmth.

It seems not all penguins like the snow.
