The three king penguins and two gentoo penguins felt right at home in the 17-degree weather. These penguins reside indoors at Penguin & Puffin Coast, which is kept at 45 degrees year-round but are given the option to participate in spontaneous winter walks that zoo employees say are enriching for the birds.
