Sundays in My City - March of the Penguins

Unknown Mami

Have you heard of Unknown Mami? She has a delightful blog where she shares photos of her city on Sundays. She invites the rest of us to link up with her and share some of our own city's photos. Click on the logo to visit Sundays in My City!

I live in St. Louis, MO. Welcome to my city!

What do penguins like to do on a cold winter day? Play outside, of course! When temperatures go below 50 degrees, several king and gentoo penguins that reside indoors will venture outdoors for a burst of winter fun with their keepers. They'll be waddling from the P&P Provisions gift shop to the entrance of Penguin & Puffin Coast for about 30 minutes. Every day, zookeepers offer animals unique activities such as changes in their environment, new smells, opportunities to forage for food, items to investigate and more.

On Sundays at 2 p.m., from December 6, 2009 to February 28, 2010 (weather permitting) our St. Louis Zoo sets the penguins free to mingle with the crowds, while under the supervision of the zookeepers. Please click here to view the YouTube video. (One of these days, I'll figure out how to incorporate the video into my post, thus saving your poor, tired fingers the extra step!)

Our zoo is free to the public (they do charge for parking in their lot) and has always been a fun day for our monkey family! (The four monkeys in the front are mine!)

That is so fun! I love that your zoo is free! Our zoo in Philly is SO expensive. I try to buy an annual membership since my son loves it so much!

Our zoo is wonderful! We love going there and just walking around and checking out stuff that might be new!

We visited the aquarium in New Orleans a few years ago. WE loved the penguin exhibit. They are so fun to watch.

I love penguins!! They are such awesome creatures. Your post reminds that I haven't been to our city zoo in a while, and I think it's high time we made our way back...after we dig ourselves out of 3 feet of snow. Thanks for sharing! Enjoy the rest of Sunday in your city!

How lucky, free entry to the zoo. Here it cost about $65 for Mum, Dad and two kids. YOur 4 monkeys look adorable.

My daughter is really into penguins right now. As a matter of fact, I've taken her to visit penguins twice last week. That's why one of my SIMC pics had a penguin in it.
