KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A new $15 million penguin exhibit is opening its doors at the Kansas City Zoo.

KCTV reports that visitors can see the tuxedo-clad animals starting Friday. More than 40 penguins are housed in the Helzberg Penguin Plaza, and the zoo hopes to add more to the 2,800-square-foot habit in coming years. The flightless birds eat up to 50 pounds of fish per day.

Kansas City Zoo Director Randy Wisthoff says he couldn’t be happier with how the exhibit turned out.
