Keeping penguins as pets is becoming an emerging trend in many countries. You might be mistaken if you still think that how can penguins be kept away from the North Pole or the South Pole? But, the fact is that, penguins which are domesticated are bred in such a way that they can withstand temperatures that are little higher than the polar conditions, but too hot weather can prove to be fatal. However, it should be kept in mind that penguins are endangered species and hence are illegal to sell. So, if you buy a penguin, you buy it on your own risk.

 

Types of Penguins That May Be Kept As a Pet

There are generally four kinds of penguins that can be actually kept as a pet. Rest of the others mostly fail to adjust themselves in an abrupt environment. The following are the four penguins that can be kept as a pet –

They weigh around 3 pounds and use their flippers for swimming. They are diurnal and love to spend most of their time in water. They eat fish, squids and other small sea fauna. These penguins can live in pairs or in isolated colonies. Fairy penguins have an average life span of about 8 years.

Fairy Penguins (wingless) – These are the same as fairy penguins except for the fact that they are wingless and can no longer take flight. That is, their flippers are cut a little so that they do not spend much of their time in water.

Emperor penguins – These penguins have a white colored body with shades of black on the head and the flippers and slight yellowish tinge surrounding the black head. They are the tallest amongst all penguins and are about 125 cm in height and weigh about 25 to 45 kg. These types of penguins can live up to 20 years in an artificial environment as well. They live in an extremely cold environment of about -40°C, so you actually need a refrigerator (or probably something more than that) kind of environment to keep these species as pets.
African Penguin – They have a height of about 3.3 m and weigh about 3 kg. They feed on fishes and live in burrows and under rocks. They are one amongst the rarest penguin for sale species to be kept as a pet.

 

Care and Attention for Penguins

Penguins for Sale - How to Buy a Penguin couplePenguins should be kept in a cold environment (that does not mean that they should be frozen into ice). There should be a constant supply of fresh water fishes and fresh water as well. Along with fresh water fishes, they should be regularly fed with various vitamin supplements for good health.

Different breeds of penguin require different environmental conditions for their survival. They should be kept at adequate temperature, moisture conditions and vegetation relevant to their species. Many species (in fact most of them) cannot live in a country that have extreme climatic variations throughout the year. You need a giant as well as a cold artificial habitat for their survival. The cost of this artificial habitat shall stand $6,000 to $10,000. The habitat shall be imitated just like a zoo where they are kept as a protected species.

Very important fact about penguins is that, penguins always live together. A single penguin cannot live for long. So, you need to have a good budget and a big room for these birds to be kept as a pet.

Penguins are quiet smart and are human friendly. They do not remain in water whole day, so you can pet the penguin easily in other environments as well.

While it is quiet illegal to sell penguins in most countries, still some people have taken efforts to give these poor fellows a friendly environment to live in. However, you need a special permit to keep these pets at your place after proving that you can feed these creatures well and keep them in a good atmosphere which includes a cold habitat and an appropriate salt-water environment.

What Will Be The Cost?                

Cost of penguins varies from species to species. The average cost for most popular domesticated species are as follows.

Fairy penguins – $956 to $1000

Fairy penguins (wingless) – $950 to $995

Emperor penguins – $1100

Thus, penguins are the most distinct species to be kept as a pet. However, very few people in this world can afford to keep penguins as pets. Even if you can spend about 10,000 bucks in buying a set of 10 penguins and making an artificial environment for another 10,000 – you still need to feed them every day with dozen of fishes and water animals which will cost you minimum of about $150+ daily. So, it is better to adopt a penguin which is a onetime investment (and then a small yearly fee) if you are so in love to keep penguins as pet. The people who will look after your penguin are trained professionals who will keep your penguin healthy and safe, and of course in an appropriate environment. Knowing, to the fact that keeping penguins is illegal, you buy a set of penguin at your own risk and make sure that you have enough bank balance before taking these creatures as your property!

    I love penguins very much, but suppose it will be hard to grow them in Southern Europe? I watched Mr Poper Penguins, but suppose that breeding such exotic pets is quite harder. However, they are beautiful and really nice animals. I love them so much.

    Penguins are cute and really wonderful animals. They are beautiful and really hard for breeding.
    I want to make a donation to the Zoo in Bratislava and wonder is it possible to find such animals and to transfer them here. We will create the best conditions for them and will breed them with love.
    Also what will be the average price for that?

      Hi.
      There are very few in the South of France. but You will find some during spring in the Azores, Portugal. Only a few days during in the beginning of Spring. Emperor penguins make yearly travels inland to breeding sites in the early spring. Near the beginning of summer, adult penguins and their chicks return to the sea and spend the rest of the summer feeding there.

  5. I really want a penguin but I live in southern california,USA . Would it be hard to have one in Cali’s climate? And also I want to convert my swimming pool into a fish tank but have it so the penguin can swim if it wants to? Would that work?

        Yes. Please do not send any money to anyone who claims to be selling penguins.
        Penguins are very delicate animals.
        They can’t be shipped. It’s hard to find someone who’s willing to sell you they pet penguin. To most of them, their penguins are they friends and partners..

  12. Hey there, I live in Canada Alberta, more specically Calgary. Not sure if we are allowed to have penguins as pet by law, but i am working on checking that out. In the mean time, do you guys have any king penguin or emperor, that would survive the constant change of environment in this location? if so, how much is each?
