The Only Place On Earth Where Penguins Fly

The Sunshine Aquarium in the Ikebukuro district of Tokyo features a unique see-through tank that lets visitors watch the facility's seal population swim laps. But the aquarium's added a special penguin exhibit this year, which is giving the little birds a taste of what it's like to fly.

During their nightly excursion, the penguins get exclusive access to the circular tank known as the Aqua Ring. The seals, which are natural predators of penguins, because an up-close view of what might happen between a penguin and a seal might not be enjoyable for the aquarium's younger guests.

    I think you're missing something in that sentence...

      Yeah I read it like 3 times before I realised it wasn't me...

    Taronga has this exact thing in their penguin exhibit.

      This exact thing? Is that done through some sort of spooky quantum entanglement where the same object is in two places at once. Oh, hangon, I get it, you meant Taronga has a similar thing didn't you?
