From South Africa wth Love (6)

Jackass Penguins also known as African Penguins are so named because their their donkey'slike barking.Two colonies were established by penguins in the 1980s on the mainland near Cape Town at Boulders Beach near Simon's Town and Stony Point in Betty's Bay. Mainland colonies probably only became possible in recent times due to the reduction of predator numbers, although the Betty's Bay colony has been attacked by leopards. This is the colony near Stony Point.
