    Link: Japanese Penguin Goes Shopping - So cute! This penguin goes shopping for his family in Japan--he`s better than a monkey butler. The ``Awww of the Day?``

    If the penguin can carry a dead penguin backpack, I want to be able to carry a dead human backpack.

    Monkey with Gun vs Penguin with Backpack. Hmm...

    And I couldn`t help but notice the penguin wearing a penguin-shaped backpack. I`m gonna start wearing a human-shaped backpack now.

    ^ You saved any dying animals from fishing lines recently? It healed and didn`t want to leave, it`s not like they took it out of it`s habitat especially to keep it.

    Tvc - Penguins don`t just live in the Antartic.
    You get African penguins (aka Blackfooted penguin or Jackass penguin) which lives on the south-western coast of, you guessed it, Africa. You get some penguins on South Amerca (rougly in the centre). Some in New Zealand. This penguin happens to be an Aptenodytes, and yes, those do come from the Antartic, so, I guess that the fishing boat moves?

    I remember seeing this on TV a long time ago. A couple weeks after, I was in a Speech & Debate class and my teacher would have us pick out random topics from a hat that we`d have to make a 3 minute (give or take, I can`t remember)speech on whatever the topic was without any time to prepare. I ended up getting penguins so I talked about this little fella. I couldn`t tell the story without cracking up because everyone thought I was making it up. Luckily someone else had seen the same show and could back me up.
    Anyway, this little guy is awesome! I wish I could rescue a penguin and have it grow attached to me so it wouldn`t leave.

    Awesome!!

    But can he only buy fish???

    And I`m assuming the owners pay the fish store a certain amount every so often.

    Lastly, it can`t be animal cruelty, `coz they treat him really well. Go penguin!!

    I don`t want one, most penguins are mean. This family just happened to rescue this one and socialize it. They`re better left in the wild.

    Oh and why are penguins like the "it" animal of teenagers. I mean why do so many people love them? Most have never even met a penguin. Just a thought.
