Pierre Penguin Celebrates His 30th Birthday

The Penguin Post has learned that Pierre, the world famous wetsuit-wearing penguin at the California Academy of Sciences, recently celebrated his 30th birthday on Saturday.  For his special day Pierre received special fishy treats and was serenaded by members of the San Francisco Girls Chorus.  Pierre’s story started in 2007, when he wasn’t molting (replacing his feathers) properly.  To help Pierre a custom penguin wetsuit was made for him to keep warm, something that had never been done before. The suit eventually worked, and Pierre was able to re-grow his feathers and rejoin the colony and has been happily waddling ever since.
