Rock” exhibit features two very active species of cold
climate penguins unique to this region. Gentoo and Macaroni penguins
take people to the world’s southern
hemisphere and the sub-Antarctic islands surrounding the South
visitors enter “Penguins’ Rock” they will find
themselves immersed in an interactive gallery that will take them
on a journey into the penguins’ world thousands of miles
these busy birds diving into an 18,000 gallon pool of 45 degree
water, with waves rolling across the floor to ceiling windows.
On land penguins are not very graceful, but you’ll soon
understand why everyone says these birds really “fly”
underwater. With flippers providing the speed, and their feet
and tail providing steering and braking these animals will amaze
everyone with their agility below the water line.
