What’s black, white, and full of surprises? The San Diego Zoo’s African penguins! This vibrant colony has more stories of seduction, love triangles, ruffled feathers, and heartwarming relationships than a soap opera. Their tuxedo-patterned plumage may give these birds a cool, calm, and collected appearance, but the drama within this group is unbelievable.
