Penguins at the Indianapolis Zoo

Opening on May 26, Oceans presented by Old National Bank is an experience Indianapolis Zoo visitors will not want to miss. As the name implies, the focus is those huge bodies of sea water that cover seven tenths of our world, and which are collectively refer to as the oceans.

When visitors reach the returning penguin exhibit, they will notice a transparent panel beneath their feet that allows them to see (and appreciate the speed) of the penguins as they “fly” underwater from one side of the exhibit to the other. Zoo visitors most certainly will be very glad to have the penguins back from their “vacation” in Texas, and they’re bringing home an addition to the flock – a baby gentoo penguin (the first born from the Indianapolis Zoo gentoo flock) that has thrived in his temporary home.
