Noodles Leads March Of The Penguins

A trio of Magellanic penguins lead by our flightless friend Noodles waddled through an exhibit at Long Beach’s Aquarium of the Pacific on Friday, in preparation for a new morning ritual. During the preview, bird handlers chased the penguins as they ran past giggling children and curious sea otters. The South American penguins then doubled back and stared at the giant tank full of fish and otters.

Starting Sunday, the penguins will make a daily public trek across the Northern Pacific Gallery every morning at 10. The penguins begin their walk by the sea otter exhibit and end it by the giant Pacific octopus. The daily penguin walk is part of the aquarium’s “Summer of Wonder” program and is included with regular admission.

The summer program includes an opportunity to make and drive a mini underwater submarine and features new exhibits about the Southern California steelhead and the Guam kingfisher, as well as touch tanks with horseshoe crabs, corals and sponges.
