    "Penguins are 10 times older than humans and have been here for a very, very long time," said Daniel Ksepka, Ph.D., a North Carolina State University research assistant professor. Dr. Ksepka researches the evolution of penguins and how they came to inhabit the African continent. Because penguins have been around for over 60 million years, their fossil record is extensive. Fossils that Dr. Ksepka and his colleagues have discovered provide clues about migration patterns and the diversity of penguin species. Dr. Ksepka goes into more depth about how his research is piecing together the evolutionary puzzle of penguins and other related bird species.

              In May of 2011, the Toronto Zoo revived the African Penguin exhibit. It opened in the African Savana pavilion which encompasses 6,000 sq feet of land. The new home of the penguins is much larger than it was previously. It contains a large pool as well as an underground viewing facility where zoo visitors can happily observe these wonderful creatures from both on land and under water.
