企鹅中的旱鸭子:落水后死命挣扎愁煞饲养员

The flightless bird has been going to pretty extreme lengths to avoid getting her feathers wet, including trying to take off.

Alistair said: ‘At first it didn’t seem like she was ever going to get the hang of it, she certainly hasn’t taken to it like a duck to water.’

But let’s have a little faith, you guys. These pictures from one of Charlotte’s recent swimming lessons are… erm, promising. Sort of.

This is Charlotte. She’s having a little bit of trouble right now thanks to a pretty big phobia of water.

In the wild penguins get used to the water quickly as it’s where their main source of food (fish, duh) comes from.

But Charlotte is used to having her food brought directly to her – sort of like a lady of leisure with webbed feet – because she’s lived at Birdland Park & Gardensin Gloucestershire since she hatched.

Normally, young penguins would learn to swim by watching their parents, so the keeper who hand-raised her, Alistair Keen, has stepped in as instructor – complete with snorkel and goggles.
