This penguin is scared of the water!

A penguin named Kentucky who lives in a UK zoo refuses to get in the water.

They've tried forcing Kentucky in to keep his feathers clean – but have resorted to pouring water on him.

'It's a bit too cold for him in the water, so he spends all his time on the rocks just walking around,' said Kentucky's keeper, Adam Stevenson.

'It's a bit of a pain having to go over to feed him because he won't go in the water but he's a real character and everyone at the zoo loves him.'

Aw, poor thing. It's good that he lives in a zoo where he doesn't have to go fishing in the water.

I think if they didn't mamby pamby him, he would get in if he was hungry enough. I love animals, but you have to treat them like the animals they are. My cat might not always like to finish his food once he's licked the jelly, but he eventually does as I won't give him anything else until he does.
That is one smart penguin having wrapped these humans round his little wings,
