SeaWorld Makes Mini Wetsuit for Penguin Losing Feathers

After experiencing feather-loss, a female Adelie penguin at Orlando's SeaWorld has given a handmade wet suit by the park's wardrobe designer. The feather loss is hindering the penguin, known as Wonder Twin, from regulating her own body temperature. "It's going to keep her warm, especially in the water," said SeaWorld aviculturist TD Dray. "Penguins live almost three-quarters of their life in the water. And now with that wet suit she's going to be in there and be able to keep warm."
