Clint Ball, aviculturist at the South Carolina Aquarium, said, "If you want, just climb right on in there with the penguin." The penguin, labeled as #101, sat behind a 3-foot wall waiting to be fed but not before a cameraman from Channel 4 and I took some pictures.
I jumped at the chance, climbed in and there I was on the floor right next to a Magellanic penguin. Everyone else stayed on the other side of the wall since there was very little room to move inside. Not afraid, he moved closer as I got my camera ready.
