SeaWorld Orlando FL: Snowy Penguin Habitat PDF Print E-mail

To see the funny, waddly, usually snowbound birds in tropical Orlando is quite an experience. Visitors are able to observe them close-up in their natural setting in the new Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin exhibit.  

The species on display include Gentoo, King, Adelie and Rockhopper penguins, with a total population of 245 of the critters. They’re all enjoying their Florida digs of more than 6,000 feet designed for running, swimming, yakking, preening and whatever else penguins do in the wild.

To make them feel at home, the area temperature is kept at just below freezing and the ground covered with patches of real snow and ice. For more information, go to seaworldparks.com/seaworld-orlando/antarctica
