Light Cycle

The camera could be dark because the light cycle for penguins is mimicking that of their natural environment in Antarctica.  As the days get longer and warmer in Kansas City it, the opposite is true in the Southern Hemisphere. This means the lights in the exhibit will be dimmed to dark so our feathered friends feel as though they are at home.  This helps their molting and breeding process and keeps them on a healthy natural cycle.
