Feeding the Penguins

Penguins eat krill (a shrimp-like crustacean in the Family Euphausiidae), squids, and fish.



Various species of penguins have slightly different food preferences, which reduce competition among species.


As part of our week of arctic animals, we fed penguins with our very own fish! Using tweezers, students grasped for different sea creatures and slipped them into the mouths of their penguins!
