Penguins graduate from zoo 'school'
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO/CNN) - Wednesday was a big day for some little penguins as they waddled from their "school" at the San Francisco Zoo to join the "big kids" at the 54-member penguin colony.
They needed a bit of guidance, as you can see, but zoo keepers were there to help them on their journey.
The penguins were born earlier this year, and spent months learning to swim and feed, so they can join the other penguins in the permanent exhibit.
The San Francisco Zoo has had Magellanic penguins since 1984.
