Penguin Encounter FAQ

There are 17 species of penguins in the world and we’re proud to showcase 11 adorable Gentoo penguins! Gentoo penguins are the third largest species and they live in a cool climate of the Falkland Islands, just off of the coast of Argentina. They eat small fish & krill, love to swim and live in highly social colonies (or waddles) often with other species of penguins. The penguin exhibit features an acrylic window with dramatic vantage points that will offer nose-to-beak viewing as penguins splash, dive and "fly" underwater.
