2008 News Archive - Holidays - Penguins born at OrlandoÂ’s SeaWorld
24 12 2008
Tourists flocking to Florida to soak up the sun this winter could be in for an extra treat after the birth of 24 new baby penguins at the SeaWorld park in Orlando.
The little fur-balls with feet are of various breeds and are aged between ten and 26 days old.
Penguin Encounter is one of SeaWorld Orlandos main attractions and could be the perfect place for parents to take children with an interest in the natural world.
The parks representatives said: "Whether they are racing through the water at show-off speed or tickling your funny bones with their notorious waddle, you'll see why these flightless comedians are such favourites."
Orlando also offers a range of other attractions aimed at families, including the world famous Walt Disney World Resort.
The area around the city has long proved popular with Brits looking to escape the UKs gloomy winter climate, as parts of Florida can expect average high temperatures of 23 degrees C in January.
