Pierre penguin has lost his plumes.

May 1st, 2008 · 2 Comments

This article from CNN.com is as cute as it is sad (just check out the before and after pictures). At the ripe age of 25, Pierre penguin lost his feathers — a predicament for penguins because their feathers provide warmth in the water. Without his feathers, Pierre steered clear of the water, the frigid temps being too much for his little body to handle.

Fortunately for Pierre, his trainers thought on their feet and designed a custom-sized wetsuit to remedy his problem. After six weeks, he is successfully integrating with his penguin friends, his plumage is beginning to return, and he’s put on some weight! Way to go le petite!

For more information, check out the CNN.com article, it’s worth the read.

    Hey, I sincerely liked all the ideas enrvyoee gave. I wish club penguin could organize something that can signify this contest. Like hiding the pirate treasure which only friends can find and whoever finds the treasure 1st, will get some amount of money or some valuable item. In this way penguins will send friend invitations to other penguins so they can have many opportunities in finding the treasure.
