Cutest of the Cute

Galapagos Penguin

Cute? Look up the word in the dictionary and you'll see my picture. I'm practically a living bobble doll. I may be wobbly on land, but in the water, I'm faster than fish and as acrobatic as dolphins. If you come to the Galapagos, you can even play with me in my giant saltwater bathtub. I'll swim right over to you and look straight in your eyes, then twist and flip, and jet off after some fish. Even though I live near the equator, like my southern relatives, I love cool water and, of course, sashimi.
