St. Louis (KSDK) - The Saint Louis Zoo released a picture Monday afternoon of a Magellanic penguin similar to the one that nipped Newt Gingrich during his visit Friday.
Gingrich was in town to speak at the National Rifle Association Convention in downtown St. Louis, and requested a zoo visit.
He came during regular visiting hours and the two hour tour included a behind-the-scenes visit with two of the Magellanic penguins at the zoo.
During the visit, Gingrich indicated he was nipped on the finger by a penguin.
A band-aid was sufficient in taking care of the injuring.
While at the zoo Gingrich also visited Big Cat Country, the Fragile Forest, and the Herpetarium.
