Penguin nesting season begins April 1 at Tennessee Aquarium
A Gentoo penguin works diligently preparing nesting rocks for future offspring. Eggs usually appear in early May through June.
Experts at the Tennessee Aquarium are preparing for the start of the 2016 nesting season at Penguins’ Rock. This process will begin on March 30 with a bit of a rodeo. At a waddle’s pace, all of the Gentoo and Macaronis will be rounded up for a trip behind the scenes to visit the Aquarium’s veterinarian.
