Did you know that penguins can consume fish equaling up to 15 percent of their total body weight every single day? Come watch zookeepers as they feed our African penguins in the 3M Penguins of the African Coast exhibit! This is a great way to learn more about these active animals and ask our zookeepers any questions you may have. Feeding demonstrations are every day at 10 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. behind the Penguin Café.
