Want to pet a penguin? Head to Shedd Aquarium

September 1, 2010 (CHICAGO)

ABC7 got a preview Wednesday of the new 'Penguin Encounter'. It lasts 30 minutes.

Visitors will learn some basic information about these birds. For example, penguins are found in the Southern Hemisphere. Their beaks are strong, so you really don't want to get bitten by one.

The Penguin Encounter is open to children ages 4 and up as long as the a're joined by a guardian. The cost is $25 per person.
