Local children and parents filled the Murphy Theatre Saturday to see the Columbus Zoo Animal Ambassadors, including this penguin, which children got to pet after the show. Thanks to local sponsors Air Transport Services Group, Donatos and the Good Fairy Fund, children received free tickets to the show, face painting for a costume parade, $1 pizza slices and giveaways. They learned about armadillos, bearcats (binturongs), penguins, kangaroos and other animals.
