SeaWorld Orlando penguin has its own wetsuit and it's adorable


A female penguin at SeaWorld Orlando, suffering from feather loss, was given a cute little wetsuit that will undoubtedly save its life.

According to SeaWorld, the adelie penguin, which lives in the "Antartica: Empire of the Penguin" exhibit, was having a tough time regulating her body temperature, so naturally, the wardrobe department created a wetsuit for her which feels like her old feathers.
