Penguin power in Mystic

MYSTIC, Conn. (WTNH) — A Mystic Aquarium penguin was hard at work Monday preparing for the 8th annual Run Walk for Penguins at Mystic Aquarium.

While he wasn’t hard at work getting in shape for the October 18th race, he was walking with painted feet over tiles which will be given out as awards.

We caught up with the tuxedo clad bird at Get Fired Up’ in Pawcatuck where he helped make forty small tiles and 22 large tiles for the fundraiser, which benefits the endangered African penguin.

He also lent his footprints to a plate which will be given to the trainer whose penguin wins their own race that day.
