North and South Penguins Leave Sydney's Taronga Zoo Wildlife Hospital

Surf's Up For Little Penguins: Meet North . . . and South


Stop the presses, there's a new North in town. Granted not my town, and not even my pooch's species, but check out this penguin!

Tiny "North" was rescued along with his pal named – you guessed it – "South" from different beaches along the New South Wales state coastline. The two Little Penguins were taken to the Wildlife Hospital at Sydney's Taronga Zoo (home of Monifa) to be treated – one was found tangled in seaweed. Poor lil guy!

Sometimes called Fairy Penguins, they're the smallest species of this bird type. (If you're fuzzy on the rest, refresh your memory with a slideshow of all the species here).

Both birds were rereleased into the open ocean off the coast of Australia today so see more pictures of North and his pal South hitting the waves when you read more.
