Aquarium's backstage tour puts beloved New Orleans penguins in your lap

Getting up close with penguins no longer requires an expensive airline ticket to remote spots in the Southern hemisphere. In fact, the only travel hassles involve French Quarter traffic and parking near the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas. That’s where 32 diving, waddling, tuxedo-clad charmers are waiting for you to show up with a bucket of fish at feeding time.
