Have you thought about interacting with Penguins and interact with the dolphins while in Miami? Penguins are a group of aquatic, flightless birds living almost exclusively in the southern hemisphere, especially in Antarctica. Highly adapted for life in the water, penguins have countershaded dark and white plumage, and their wings have become flippers. Most penguins feed on krill, fish, squid, and other forms of sea life caught while swimming underwater. They spend about half of their life on land and half in the oceans.
Although all penguin species are native to the southern hemisphere, they are not found only in cold climates, such as Antarctica. In fact, only a few species of penguin live so far south. Several species are found in the temperate zone, and one species, the Galápagos Penguin, lives near the equator. Now you can find them in Miami !!
Meet the newest creatures to call Miami their home – African Penguins living at the brand new Penguin Isle. As soon as guests walk up to Penguin Isle, they will be greeted over-sized, colorful graphics and educational displays about penguins and the challenges they face in the wild.
The new penguin habitat features an 800-square-foot rocky, dry area, and adjoining 9,000 gallon pool. Guests will be able to come face to face with the penguins, viewing them both above and below the water through large acrylic windows and an acrylic underwater swimming tunnel.
