Lonesome Penguins

To brighten up your Monday morning:

Lonesome penguin cheered up by his new friend… a stuffed toy.

A baby penguin which had to be separated from its family after a greedy sibling continually ate all its food has found companionship – with this stuffed toy.

The penguin – called Pingu – began to lose weight and appeared weak after its bigger relative regularly helped himself to all the fish on offer.

Concerned keepers were forced to remove Pingu from the enclosure, but at just three-weeks-old the penguin was in desperate need of company.

Staff bought a £3.99 toy penguin from the zoo shop which acts as a surrogate sibling to the chuffed chick – who cuddles up to its new friend all day.
