In the movies, penguins can sing and dance. In real life, it seems they can draw too. Moody Gardenss 45-minute Penguin Encounter includes a biologist-led tour of the pengers habitats and one-on-one time with them, along with a penguin-created piece of artwork. (Were guessing there are little feet involved, because penguins dont have any thumbs, so holding a paintbrush seems out of the question.) Admission is limited, so get there early. 1 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. Through March 8. 1 p.m. daily, from March 14 to March 22. One Hope Boulevard, Galveston. For information, call 800-582-4673 or visit www.moodygardens.com. $15 to $20.
Saturdays, Sundays, 1 p.m.; Mondays-Sundays, 1 p.m. Starts: Jan. 31. Continues through March 22, 2009
