St. Louis penguin gets shoes

The St. Louis Zoo gave shoes to the elderly penguin Enrique.

The penguin is at least 30 years old, although they do not live more than 10 in the wild.

The animal suffers from arthritis, so they made boots for him that make him move around more actively and spend more time in the water.

“We always say his longevity is a credit to the zoo continuing to take care of him. We’re lucky to have had him with us for so long,” said one zoo employee.
