Cheering Up a Depressed Penguin


There is only one species of penguin naturally found along the southern coast of Australia called little penguins or fairy blue penguins  (the smallest penguin species). However, a rockhopper penguin recently washed ashore. The poor penguin had some medical issues, particularly with molting (don’t you hate when that happens?).  The Perth Zoo took in the little guy they call Pierre. Though he began to recover physically, he appeared to be a depressed penguin. At a loss, keepers decided to try to show Pierre other penguins using an Ipad, even a cartoon penguins. See for yourself, it worked! Now you know what to do if you ever have a depressed penguin.
