    I had no idea that emperor penguins could be kept outside. I've always heard that they would die if kept outside of a chilled penguin house because of their fat reserves which would cause them to overheat.

    Bit of a late reply but in winter at least Dalian is very cold. I couldn't really say whether it is cold enough though, and certainly in summer it wouldn't be.
