Penguin Days

Dallas Zoo’s first-ever penguin chick, Marina, 3 months old waited for several minutes before taking her first swim on Tuesday, July 14, 2015. Marina recently lost her fluffy gray downy feathers, which means she’s ready to safely begin swimming lessons with her new, mature feathers.

At the zoo, winter means the temperature is dropping – and so are the prices. Visit the African penguins along with all your other animal friends during the Penguin Days promotion, which offers a daily discounted admission price of $8.

Visitors can warm up in the indoor learning areas including the Herpetarium, Bug U!, the Jake L. Hamon Gorilla Conservation Research Station, the Highland Hippo Hut and the Simmons Safari Base Camp.

All activities are weather dependent.
