As the oldest penguin in the colony, I’ve earned the title of the grumpy old man. I like to boss around all the other penguins on exhibit and they all seem to respect me as the king. When I’m not barking orders, I love to be buried in snow piles and munch on some delicious herring.
Despite my age, I’m still in great health thanks to the wonderful care provided by the staff at the zoo. I’m a living testament to the important role that zoos and aquariums play in the conservation and preservation of endangered species.
