Penguins at Al Ain Wildlife Park and Resort

One of the most visited areas of Al Ain Wildlife Park and Resort is the Bird House, just few blocks away from the Dinosaur Trail, where you can find several avian species including these aquatic and flightless penguins. It was an amazing experience for me to see these flippers. They look so cute and adorable and I watched them swim and walk around the enclosed area for about twenty minutes.

(please click the images to enlarge)
Their 'sanctuary' is well ventilated and air conditioned in a high cool setting.

They look like sumnabulist critters :) in this shot


a lovely flipper
