Penguin Encounter - Penguin Exhibit

      Some years ago I learned that the San Antonio park had Emperor Penguins along with the San Diego park, while Orlando did not. Is this still the case?

      According to their website descriptions:

      San Antonio: rockhopper, gentoo, chinstrap, and king

      San Diego: emperor, king, adelie, gentoo, and macaroni

      Orlando: unspecified, but from another part of the website no additional Antarctic species are listed besides the ones above.

      They also list Magellanic and Humboldt species but do not specify where. I have been to both Orlando and San Antonio recently and did not see them, so I suspect they are only in San Diego in the outdoor exhibit that is only in front of San Diego's facility.

      San Diego also has chinstrap. The Magellanic penguins in San Diego are outside in front of the Penguin Encounter, and the Humboldt penguins are off-display.

      I'm not sure about the other two parks.

      What is the breeding like with the Emperors and kings at the Sea World sites?

      Sea World San Diego has had twenty successful emperor penguin births since 1980.
