More information about this animal

Here at Urban Paws UK, we provide a range of penguins that are transported and handled by a team of experts.

Animal acting ability

We work closely with highly experienced trainers. They carry their own licence in accordance with the Dangerous Wild Animals Act 1976. We can provide penguins to be present on set as well as trained to display certain behaviours. and or tricks. All of our exotic animals are from zoos and private collections. We only work with animals that are ethically sourced and cared for, whilst working within the animal welfare guidelines.

As penguins are an exotic species, precautions are always in place to make sure the animal is handled correctly. The handlers will make sure all welfare needs are met whilst they are on set.

Penguins in media

Penguins are a brilliant species to work with. Having already been used in advertising for multiple car companies in the past. One of the most recent advertisements portraying penguins was a Christmas advert for John Lewis, which features an adorable penguin longing for love. This advert was voted second out of ten for the John Lewis Christmas ads. The store was in high demand of the Monty the penguin teddies because of this.

One of the main facts about penguins is that they have no natural land predators, so they have no fear of humans.  They are naturally relaxed with people, this is a bonus when working with them!
