Roxy, a popular Rockhopper penguin at the London zoo, is actively looking for a mate. She is free, single and even has a MySpace page advertising her qualities. Jackass penguins need not apply.

“I’ve been living here at London Zoo for over a year after moving from Whipsnade Zoo. I just couldn’t hack country life as I’m more of an urban chick and prefer the pace of life in London. I’ve been lucky with my property acquisitions; there aren’t many pads in central London that boast their own pool and lots of outdoor space."

Roxy's personal ad continues on to discuss her views on commitment: "I’m keen to see what else is out there before I commit though--we penguins are faithful souls that mate for life so I don’t want to be too hasty.” Roxy posted on her page."

She's looking for “A male rockhopper with good feathers--must be part of the European breeding programme though."

Among her favorite heroes are Feathers McGraw, Pingu, Wheezy the Penguin, and Chilly Willy.

You can visit Roxy online and send a Valentine card. She has many human friends and admirers.
