Thursday 11 Aug 2011 11:27 p.m.

Now that Happy Feet is healthy and thriving, Wellington Zoo have decided to feed him just once a day.

Feeding takes place between 4pm and 6pm New Zealand time, depending on the workload of zoo staff.

Because so many of Happy Feet’s fans have been asking about it, 3 News has managed to capture his feeding time on video so that you can watch it at any time of the day.

What is Happy Feet's dinner made up of:

  • The liquid is fluids and electrolytes - so basically it is penguin powerade
  • He is fed 1kg of salmon or sardines once per day; this has reduced because he is doing well.
  • He now weighs 26 kg
