Here’s a little treat to finish out the old year!
Lala the Penguin
This 10-year-old King Penguin was rescued from a fisherman's line and refused to leave after he was healed. He was adopted by a family in a small town in Japan and became a beloved pet who has his own personal air-conditioned cold room. Lala is so smart - he walks to the fish store with his little backpack to shop for fresh fish every day.
It's sad that he is not in the wild with his fellow Penguins, but he seems to have found a very good life with his new friends.
