A penguin swims in for a closer look at visitors at the Saint Louis Zoo's Penguin and Puffin Coast in St. Louis on August 20, 2013. The zoo today moved 20 Humboldt penguins off site and will eventually close the entire exhibit in several weeks for construction of the new polar bear display nearby. The McDonnell Polar Bear Point, opening in the spring of 2015, will have a walk-through cave where visitors can watch polar bears swim overhead. UPI/Bill Greenblatt
