This lost penguin flipped up his flipper in hopes of hitching a ride back to a Spanish island after wandering off by itself.
Paul Chapman snapped a few photos of the lone King Penguin after he encountered it waddling toward Teal Inlet in the East Falklands.
“It wasn’t bothered or scared by us and just carried on walking back to the nearest town,” the 56-year-old told Caters News Agency.
Chapman was headed to a popular fishing spot nearby, which may have been where the penguin was coming from.
