Scratched glass in Florida

Busch Gardens, Florida.
We are underway on a restoration project at Busch Gardens, Tampa, for the new Penguin exhibit. This exhibit was formerly the Otter exhibit. Otters are very damaging to glass, due to their habit of shell cracking. Where they would normally lay a stone on their stomach to crack open oysters or abalone, they were fascinated by the hardness of glass, thus nearly destroying their own exhibit. We are currently repairing the scratched glass for the future penguin exhibit opening in December, 2014.
