Cute Alert: Pierre the Penguin Gets a Wetsuit!

Poor Pierre! At 25, this adorable African penguin was losing his feathers. This created a host of problems for the little guy: problems swimming, feeling chills, and getting picked on by the other penguins. But thanks to his handler Pam Schaller at the California Academy of Sciences, he got his mojo back. How? She had some local surfers design Pierre his own wetsuit! Not only did it keep him warm, but his feathers grew back and his alpha status returned, too. He's currently seeing a penguin half his age. (This sounds suspiciously like a "Hair Club For Men" commercial.) PetSugar tells me it's World Penguin Day! Yay!
