Lincoln, NE - The Lincoln Children’s Zoo announced today that an additional three Humboldt penguins are now residing at the Zoo making the waddle (what a group of penguins is called) a total of five penguins. The three penguins were transferred from SeaWorld in Californian. The males are eight years-old and were all born within three days of each other.

Major donors to the exhibit named the new penguins, Soren, Topper and Pengee. One donor enlisted help in naming a penguin from a kindergarten class at Ruth Hill Elementary School. The class voted on the name Pengee.

All of the penguins are doing well and are busy exploring the exhibit.

To celebrate their arrival, the BOO at the ZOO path will walk by the new exhibit on Tuesday night. If the penguins enjoy seeing all of the ghost and goblins, we will continue routing the path by the exhibit for the entire Boo at the Zoo event through Saturday night October 30th.

Visit: to see photos of the new penguins.

Boo at the Zoo is The Lincoln Children’s Zoo larges t annual fundraising event and will run October 26-30, nightly from 5:30 PM – 8:00 PM. Check out this link for more Bo at the Zoo info:
