This isn't the first time we've seen a Humboldt penguin in a wetsuit, but this guy's condition seems to be lasting longer than usual. The suits are also supposed to encourage feather growth and prevent new feathers from falling out, so here's hoping he's on the mend. Click through for more cute photos of our featherless friend.
Let these friendly penguins bring a smile to your Sunday as the feathered fellas attempt to befriend fluttery butterflies. A hilarious game of follow the flying leader starts but the birds never quite grasp the colorful bugs — enjoy!
