ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – Penguins swim by as a keeper cleans their quarters at the Saint Louis Zoo’s Penguin and Puffin Coast in St. Louis on Tuesday.

The Zoo just moved 20 Humboldt penguins off site and will eventually close the entire exhibit in several weeks for construction of the new polar bear display.

The McDonnell Polar Bear Point is opening in the spring of 2015, will have a walk-through cave where visitors can watch polar bears swim overhead.
