» The Kansas City Zoo, which used Omaha's zoo as a foil two years ago in urging voter approval of a zoo tax, has opened its new penguin exhibit — with help from Omaha.
“We sent three king penguins and four rockhopper penguins,” said Dennis Pate, CEO of Omaha's renowned Henry Doorly Zoo & Aquarium. “It's always a challenge to open a new exhibit, especially with animals you didn't have in your collection before.”
