Idaho Zoo Penguins Waddle to Texas

Two black-footed penguins from the Tautphaus Park Zoo in Idaho Falls are heading south. Primary penguin keeper Amy Vargas says the penguins are going to the Dallas Zoo on Tuesday to bolster that zoo’s population and become part of an education and outreach program. Vargas tells the Penguin Post that zoo workers and volunteers have worked with the birds to make sure they are comfortable around people.  The Tautphaus Zoo will still have 20 penguins after the two depart.
