Tiny Featherless Penguin Gets Tiny Bespoke Wetsuit

by , 10/28/16   filed under: Eco-Fashion News

There are a number of problems with SeaWorld, but this little Adelie penguin isn’t one of them. Named Wonder Twin, the Orlando resident has trouble regulating her body temperature because of feather loss, a naturally occurring phenomenon that SeaWorld says can prove detrimental in the wild. With help from the theme park’s costume department, SeaWorld’s aviculture team created a wee wetsuit to mimic the insulating properties of Wonder Twin’s missing coat. The result is nothing short of life-changing. “Wonder Twin swims, sleeps, and eats alongside her fellow penguins while wearing her wetsuit,” a representative said.
