Hi FB Gal!
Yep, what you read is true! The penguins used to be and have been the star attraction at the zoo for decades. But....they seem to have got hacked off with all of the attention that the panda's got since they arrived. So, they started flipping their poo over the fence at some of the zoo visitors once they'd done their business!! Must be the penguins way of protesting over something, either that or it's their jealous streak coming out!!!
The penguins get out for a walkabout every day at the zoo and this used to be thye main attraction as can be seen here in these vids -

Seeing the penguin parade is great, and I first saw it when my parents took me to the zoo for the first time when I was about 4 or something. Alas, I wasn't happy enough with just seeing the penguins walking in front of me......I charged into the middle of them as a 4 year old might do closely followed by my dad shouting at me and trying to grab me.. but missing!!
Maybe the next Happy Feet film should have poo flipping penguins in it!!!
