For the first time ever, this spring and summer the Assiniboine Zoo will be getting PENGUINS!!
There will be African Black-footed penguins and you will be able to watch them in both underwater and above water lands. These penguins are approx 40 cm tall and very "active and engaging animals". The exibit will be near the International polar bear conservation centre. The exhibit will have ledges and nest boxes along with a rock atmosphere for the penguins.
Be sure to see this attraction as it is only temporary, and is supposed to open in may.
