Escaped Penguin Looks Good

Authorities seem to agree that Penguin Number 337 looks to be in good health. As reported in the Penguin Post the other day the young fugitive penguin, was filmed this month near Tokyo Rainbow Bridge, Reuters reported. It’s the first time it’s been spotted since escaping the Tokyo Aquarium this past March. “It doesn’t look like it has gotten thinner over the past two months, or been without food,” a zoo official told Reuters. “It doesn’t seem any weaker. So it looks as if it’s been living happily in the middle of Tokyo Bay.” Some people are worried about the 1-year-old bird being exposed to possible rising radiation, according to the report. But so far, it shows no sign of being affected.

Officials are sure this is Penguin 337 from the distinctive yellow bands on his flippers.
