Pierre, the sharply dressed penguin

This is kind of impressive!

This NPR story notes how old Pierre is for a penguin:

    In the wild, penguins live about 15 years; in captivity, they live to about 20. Pierre turned 25 in February.

He’s also looking a lot healthier in the video than he did in the story’s photograph:

Thanks Violet Dragon!

Yeah, I think maybe the wetsuit helped him grow some of his feathers back or something. In the article I read it said he’s almost back to being the way he was before he started losing feathers. Good luck Pierre!
