Happy Feet Wrong Way
September 6, 2011 by staff
The emperor penguin shot to international fame when stranded on a beach in June.
Despite initial fears of his health after eating sand, believing it to snow, Happy Feet fully recovered at Wellington Zoo.
Then last week, equipped with a lightweight-tracking device stuck in their feathers, which was loaded into a box to fit and took aboard a research vessel in Antarctic waters.
After some encouragement, was released into the water in the hope that he would make his own way home.
But a few days after his release, Happy Feet track appeared to show the swim back to New Zealand.
They said they hope the penguin is just food in a zigzag and finally turn south again, or they can meet other teens and the penguins are.
Penguins often zigzag when feeding, but move in a straight line when traveling.
Tracking Happy Feet turned into seven hours, 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m., New Zealand time, and then from 20:00 until midnight.
