Shared habitat

The Penguin Café Gallery in Malate, Manila (just several blocks away from the Malate Church) derived its name from the owner's large collection of penguins. Here is one decorating a lamp in a corner, with a couple of penguins painted on the window. I don't know if geckos have the same type of habitat, but this twisted one looks happy enough sharing the same space as the penguins.

Penquins are such interesting and entertaining creatures. Lovely shot, Hilda.

Is this a cafe and a gallery?

It looks like a cute place.

There was a restaurant/diner here who's owners displayed their collection of frogs. Hundreds of them. Who wouldn't like penguins?

Collections of penguins? Sharing places with geckos? Everything is possible in a cafè, which looks very, very nice!

Manilla is the country where penguins are allway.

Is there anyone who doesn't like penguins?

Not sure if penguins and geckos would share a habitat in the wild, but here they seem to get along quite well!

JM said...

Very cool!
Penguin Cafe (Orchestra) is the name of a musical group. They are pretty good.

If you just have to collect something, you couldn't do better than penguins! I love them! Nice shot Hilda.

That is a great concept for a cafe/restaurant.

What kind of food do they serve in this restautant

I think people would come to see the penguins as much as to get a meal. It sounds like a good ploy to me, and definitely lends itself to a neat odd shot photo.

Geckos and penguins cohabitating? That is odd.
