GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - The 28 Magellanic penguins at the John Ball Zoo got their annual physicals Tuesday.

Their tank was drained and zookeepers, vets and vet students all helped out giving them beak and nail trims and drawing blood.

The zoo is closed for the winter, but will reopen in the spring.
