Awesome list! I would definitely have to add The New England Aquarium (Boston, MA) http://www.neaq.org and The Henry Doorly Zoo (Omaha, NE) http://www.omahazoo.com/

Both have fantastic penguins to visit! You've just expanded my list of places I "must see!" - thank you!

Dear sir,

My brother and I are going to the national science fair and were wondering if we would be allowed to use this image in our presentation.

Our project is about the your sense of taste and how your nose affects it.

We would also include a link back to your site on our poster.

Thank you very much
