    Default The penguin who hates to get wet

    This is one penguin who’s definitely in need of a pick-me-up.
    Because Kentucky totally flips out at the sight of water. Instead of diving in with his pals he tries to turn himself into Kentucky fried penguin by basking on a rock in the winter sun.
    Most penguins spend half of their life in the water but Kentucky turns his beak up at the pool at the 80-acre Blackbrook Zoological Park in Staffordshire.
    Deputy curator Jaclyn Pearson said: “He was a runt and always had bad moults. His feathers are back to normal but he’s 11 now, which is quite old for a penguin. And he refuses to go in as he’s got into the habit of not doing so.
    “Visitors really like him though – he gets special attention because he won’t go in the water.”

    leave him alone.. he probably spent hours arranging his feathers that morning.

    How cool!! He does his own thing and it works for him, which makes him even cuter in my eyes.
    Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.
