***LATEST NEWS***

Professional scuba diver Derek Youd has a rather unusual dive buddy – an 18-month old macaroni penguin named Yoyo.

The unlikely relationship bloomed from the moment when Yoyo dipped his feathers into the water at only three months of age and now the unlikely pair are almost inseperable as the cute and perky little seabird even joins in with his human counterpart's pre-dive safety checks.

Normally found in the sub-Antarctic living on rocky islands like South Georgia and the Falklands, this particular youngster resides at the Living Coasts Zoo & Aquarium in Torquay, Devon, where suitably-qualified divers can enjoy the opportunity to swim with these fascinating creatures as participants in the UK's only Penguin Dive Experience.
