Penguin Walk at the Calgary Zoo

 Glory Przekop Jan 11, 2013

The King penguins at the Calgary Zoo are busting out of the Penguin Plunge exhibit and taking a walk. It is part of a new attraction called ‘Penguin Walk.’

The King penguins take a 15 minute walk or waddle around the Penguin Plunge exhibit.  They where chosen because they naturally stick together and walk in a line.

The zoo says it is also good exercise for them and it is a good for them to break their routine and experience new sights and sounds.

You can catch a glimpse of the waddling King penguins three times a week, Monday, Wednesday and Saturday at 11 a.m. beginning Monday, January 14th.
