MACARONI PENGUIN: The macaroni penguins can be seen at the Penguinarium – the first zoo facility built specifically for penguins – along with the rockhopper and king penguins.  A unique circular pool lets the birds swim continuously, giving them the ability to swim fast enough to porpoise and “fly” through the water.  The Detroit Zoo is one of the few zoos where penguins can display this natural behavior.
