Black Penguin Found
National Geographic Traveler contributor Andrew Evans recently spotted and filmed an all-black king penguinâ€”a very rare mutantâ€”on the sub-Antarctic island of South Georgia.
This penguin isn’t just going through an emo stage or trying to break out a trend in his Penguin culture, however. Dr. Allan Baker, an ornithologist and head of the Department of Natural History at the Royal Ontario Museum, called the discovery of the â€˜all-blackâ€™ king penguin â€œastonishing.â€ He jokingly said â€itâ€™s a one in a zillion kind of mutation,â€ and scientifically calls it â€˜very rare.â€™
Who wouldn’t want to be like the crows?
