Special wetsuit keeps penguin without feathers warm

News

ORLANDO, Fla. (FOX 13) — “Wonder Twin” is an adorable little Adelie penguin with a big problem: She’s experiencing feather-loss.

Wonder Twin is one of the penguins at SeaWorld’s Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin exhibit and she has very few feathers, which can be a problem since they spend so much time in the cold water.

To help, SeaWorld enlisted the expertise of its wardrobe department. Together, the wardrobe department and SeaWorld’s aviculture team created a special wetsuit for Wonder Twin, which helped to mimic her former coat of feathers, SeaWorld said.

Now, wearing her new wetsuit, Wonder Twin does everything her fellow penguins do, and stays warm, without even missing a beat.
