The Naples Zoo debuted their newest exhibit, Penguins in Paradise, on Wednesday.

This is the first time that penguins have ever been on exhibit at Naples Zoo.

Unlike their cousins in Antarctica, these African penguins thrive in a subtropical climate like that of southwest Florida. 

African penguins are native to the rocky coastline and islands of South Africa.

They eat anchovies, sardines and other small fish species.

Penguins in Paradise is a seasonal traveling exhibit that will be in southwest Florida until April 15, 2018.
