ORLANDO — One penguin at SeaWorld Orlando is sporting a new look.
The park created a one-of-a-kind wetsuit for Adelie, a female penguin that recently experienced feather loss, reported CFN13. It prevented her from being able to naturally regulate her body temperature, according to officials.
So, SeaWorld’s aviculture team decided to create Adelie a wetsuit that would mimic her former coat of feathers.
The park’s wardrobe department designed and sewed the wetsuit, which was custom-fit just for her.
Adelie can swim, sleep and eat with the other penguins, all while wearing the suit.
Visitors can see Adelie and other penguins at the park’s Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin exhibit.
