The Calgary Zoo has recently decided that the King Penguins need a little bit more exercise..so they have started doing "walkabouts" 3 days a week, where they allow the penguins out of their enclosure for a little 15 min waddle around the zoo.
We decided to take the girlies to it since they do love their penguins and I thought it would be neat experience.
And it was...well, it was busy and we only arrived in the nick of time for it to start - so we didn't have a great vantage point. But it was still pretty cool.
Pretty cool. The penguin enclosure at the zoo is pretty open, but it was still so neat to see these guys out and about.
If you'd like to visit and see the Penguin Walk, it will be going on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays between 11 - 11:15am until early March. If it is colder than -25C or warmer than +10C - the walk may be cancelled so if this is your only reason for going, you may want to call ahead to ensure it is still proceeding.
