Happy Feet Wrong WayHappy Feet Wrong Way, Wayward Penguins Happy Feet – released into the ocean after a brief stay in New Zealand – can not be heading for the Antarctic, after all, according to their tracking device.

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.
