Penguins on a plane

Passengers on a US flight were surprised to see a penguin stretching his legs down the aisle of their plane.

'Pete the Penguin' was flying back to SeaWorld in San Diego after appearing at a national science convention in San Francisco.

Special dispensation was granted to allow the penguin to stretch his legs in the cabin as opposed to being kept in cramped conditions in the undercarriage. And who would complain? This little penguin in beyond cute!

His keepers even took to the tannoy to explain more about pete and his natural habitat.

Who said penguins couldn't fly?
