Another Naked Bird!

OH no! :lol: This one's a penguin from California. His name is Pierre and he's 25 years old. Turns out, Pierre was suffering from baldness which left him with a naked butt and back. As you probably know ;) penguins need their feathers to protect them from the icy cold water. Well, Pierre couldn't go swimming, poor thing, so his caretakers got in touch with some dive gear makers and they decided to help by designing him a special penguin wet suit! Now Pierre the penguin can enjoy the water again and not worry about freezing his little tail. By the way, turns out these species of penguin only live to be 20 but Pierre here is 25! niiiiice
