Dudley Zoo has p.p.p.picked up 21 brightly coloured pengins to mark it’s 75th anniversary.
The fibreglass penguins, who have all been named Dudley, will feature around the zoo site, as well as appearing at a number of surprise venues in coming weeks.
Dudley Zoo Head of Media and Communications, Jill Hitchman, said: "They're fab models and really make everyone smile when they see them.
"We have 21 in honour of Pingu, our oldest Humboldt penguin who celebrated his 21st birthday last week, and they will be placed around the site in a special Penguin Trail.
"The 21 Dudleys will also be taking part in a whole series of adventures at schools, shopping centres and may even be going on holiday, we'll just have to see where they turn up!
"We hope to have a lot of fun finding out 'Where's Dudley' throughout our anniversary year."
