Behind the Scenes Experience
Meet some of the Fort Worth Zoo’s penguins up close in the Penguin Tour. Your tour begins at the Penguins exhibit, where you will be met by one of the Zoo’s interpretive specialists. Watch as keepers feed and train the Zoo’s flock of rockhopper and African penguins and answer your questions!
