#Penguins at the Kansas City Zoo

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — At the Kansas City Zoo, they know how to chill.

The Helzberg Penguin Plaza was competed in 2014 and cost $15 million. The exhibit features four types of penguins: Humboldt, King, Genstoo and Rockhopper. The 13 warm-water penguins have an area outside in which to play, while the cold-water penguins are kept indoors in an area that is constantly 45 degrees. There are about 50 penguins in the inside exhibit, where they have an area to lounge as well as swim as they would in their natural habitat, said marketing and communications manager Sarah Gay.
