There's a Famous Penguin Knight in Norway Who Was Just Promoted to Brigadier General

From the Edinburgh Zoo's FB page: "On Monday morning, 22 August, His Majesty the King of Norway's Guard paid a very special visit to RZSS Edinburgh Zoo to bestow a unique honour upon our resident king penguin Sir Nils Olav III. Already a knight, the most famous king penguin in the world was given the new title of 'Brigadier Sir Nils Olav'." Congrats, Nils!

Anna Faris and Chris Pratt's son, Jack, had the privilege of naming a new penguin at Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle last year. He chose the name "Eagle" and the two cuties finally got to meet recently. So adorable!

This lucky penguin made the journey from the back of a truck, past cars and dangerous dogs into the arms of local Peruvian police. After an uncertain first confrontation he was taken back to the police station, fed fish and affectionately named Pingui. He is on his way to a penguin habitat in northern Peru where he will be safe and happy.
