18 Tennessee Tuxedos

The Penguin Post has learned that Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies has dedicated its new penguin exhibit.
The Penguin Playhouse is the most expensive addition to the aquarium in Gatlinburg, Tennessee during its decade of existence.
There are 18 African black-foot penguins in the 4,000-square-foot exhibit, which includes a 30,000-gallon saltwater tank.
Aquarium officials told The Knoxville News Sentinel another dozen of the aquatic birds will be added.
Two clear underwater tunnels allow children to crawl into above-water bubbles to see the penguins up close.
