Stop what you are doing right now because I am about to introduce you to the most adorable content you’ve seen. I promise!
Adorable Pierre wasn’t feeling well as a result of feather moulting so he had to be taken to a rehabilitation centre for his treatment.
But, since the zookeepers didn’t want him to feel lonely, they provided him with his very own iPad that he uses to binge-watch Pingu. How cute!
‘Pierre’ the penguin has become iPad-savvy during a stint of rehabilitation for feather moulting problems at Perth Zoo. He enjoys watching rockhopper penguin documentaries, livestreams of rockhopper penguins and ‘Pingu’. https://t.co/8ftPfFYTVQ #7NEWS pic.twitter.com/6n0IkydVTN— 7NEWS Adelaide (@7NewsAdelaide) August 25, 2020
Staff members of the zoo have been showing him real-life footage of fellow rockhoppers to make him feel at home. One of the zookeepers in an interview said:
To make his life a bit more enriching we’ve decided to get other rockhoppers online for him to watch. Pierre’s been enjoying watching them and seeing them in their little habitats at their zoo.
