The juvenile Emperor Penguin which stands about a metre tall and weighs about 10 kilograms, has ended up thousands of kilometres from home, on a New Zealand beach. This is only the second time this has happened.
Penguins in the Antarctic, eat ice when cooling down, and here the poor little chappie was trying to do the same with sand and sticks.
He was taken to the Wellington Zoo hospital, where he has undergone a second operation to clear his airway and help him recover.
Penguins are such sweet animals and hope he recovers and can get back down to where he belongs. He has been named Happy Feet, by those caring for him and really hope that he will be doing the happy dance soon.
I hope that you are having a wonderful weekend.
