LIVE: Hooray For Penguin Awareness Day!

Celebrate the day by checking in LIVE on these little knuckleheads at the Monterey Bay Aquarium! (Click the video button, and you’ll see a live feed. So to speak.) From the video: “Watch carefully and you might even see them communicating with each other. When penguins flap their wings or bow their heads, they’re telling each other how they feel. Throwing their heads back and wings out means ‘I’m happy.’ Leaning forward and opening their beaks means ‘Go away.'”

World Cup Material Here, For Sure

Spotted this video on Tastefully Offensive. They say this is Tsubasa-kun The Penguin, showing off some mad soccer skillz at the Matsue Vogel Aviary Park in Shimane, Japan. And that’s fine. But..we ran the YouTube text through the trusty Google Translate, and got:

It was held the football World Cup Brazil tournament. In order to support the Japanese representative in Matsue Vogel Park, the Samurai Blue uniforms and we have a walk dressed. Meanwhile, I was taken with exceptionally great show playing penguin videos because we (the name is Tsubasa-kun!!) stomach.

iPad + Penguins = Bebeh Penguins

That seems to be the bottom line from this story on Fast Company.com. The Tuxedo Dudes and Dudettes love the iPad game Game for Cats; it keeps them in top physical shape. Which makes them more likely to…make Little Tuxedo Dudes and Dudettes. Guess those iPad screen protectors will only do so much, eh? [*Note- “Cool Hunting” is the name of the video maker. -Ed.]



Which Of These Things Isn’t Like The Other Thing?

Now, the credits on this photo (From The Guardian.com) say Gunther Riehle/Solent News & Photo Agency. So I have no doubt that it’s real.

A Puppeh’s Tail Tale

[C’MON, JUST A NIBBLE, WHAT D’YA SAY, BE A PAL, JUST A LEETLE TASTE, C’MON, WHAT’S A PENGUIN GOTTA DO!]

Say OMG.

Happy Feet Once More!

Poor little fella had a problem. This Humboldt Penguin was born with splayed feet after his parents had been sitting on him too heavily. So what did the staff at Sea Life Scarborough (UK) do?

Well, they made him a pair of corrective pants.

He wore the special extra-elasticized trousers for six weeks, and now he is back to normal!
