Birds - they make everything look easy, don’t they? Give a Scarlet Macaw an almond, and it will crack it open and devour it in mere seconds, while we are still trying to figure out in which kitchen drawer the nutcracker is hiding. A King penguin merely has to gracefully push its wings up and down and suddenly it is effortlessly thrust through the water at dizzying speeds, while we are still struggling to fit into our swimsuits. And flying? Forget about it! A rainbow lorikeet can just FALL off a perch, right itself in the air and zip around our heads with glee. And us?
With the hustle and bustle of the holidays behind us, most of us are finding time to finally kick back, relax, and maybe play with some of our Christmas presents or work on our new years resolutions. But here at the SeaWorld San Antonio Penguin Encounter, things are anything but relaxing!
