A penguin pet would be so awesome...
"King [and gentoo!] penguins explore the snowy outdoors with keeper Cyndie Gitter on Thursday, January 12, 2012 at the St. Louis Zoo. Keepers decided to use the wintry weather as part of the penguins' daily enrichment activity by letting a few selected penguins walk outside of the Penguin and Puffin Coast area."
WTF? Dick move, penguin.
