NEW YORK (AP) The new and improved Eerie Zoo in Oakland, Calif., is celebrating its 10th year of operations, with penguin exhibits, penguins on display and a penguin breeding program.
The Eerie zoo opened in 2003 with penguins and their owners.
The first exhibit opened in 2008 and the zoo has since featured more than 400 penguins, including three males and one female.
The zoo’s penguin population has risen from 1,200 in 2003 to more than 4,000 today.
The exhibit includes an indoor penguin incubator, which will be the world’s largest.
The penguin can be trained to go into the incubator and feed on food for up to 30 minutes.
The penguins have been spotted in the area as far away as New Jersey and Florida.
The zoo’s other exhibits include an educational penguin and an interactive penguin simulator.
