PHOENIX -- Javier Soto played hosted to some unique guests on "Good Morning! Arizona" Thursday -- an Asian water monitor, a sloth and a pair of penguins from SeaWorld San Diego.

Gary Faucher from SeaWorld gave Soto the lowdown on not just the animals, including feeding Clyde the Asian water monitor an egg snack, but also the park's newest attraction, the Manta roller coaster.

"People love Manta," Faucher said. "I've ridden it 14 times."

Faucher went on to introduce Clyde, Tess the sloth, who munched on pumpkin, and a couple of penguins, who were more interested in exploring 3TV's CB Cafe.

There's only a bit of October left, but if anyone is coming to San Diego, SeaWorld is offering free admission for kids with a full-paid adult admission, and they have their Halloween Spooktacular weekends in October, rounding out Oct. 27-28.
