Our energetic and inquisitive African penguins are visitor favorites.
We feed the African penguins in our Splash Zone exhibit multiple times a day, sometimes by hand to make sure they get their daily vitamin, and sometimes by tossing food into the water to stimulate foraging behavior. Watch for underwater acrobatics as the penguins dart and dive to catch their fish.
