Buddy is a very cool penguin I got to know when I was working at the Cincinnati Zoo as a Guest Keeper. Buddy has a great sense of humor:

I got the behind-the-scenes tour a few years ago and the Magellanics were the best. I was in that same hallway, with them hooting for hugs all around us! Thought about sneaking one out… ha. Being in the exhibit behind the glass was really awesome too – I always wanted to be one of the folks “in” the penguin exhibits every time I saw one and finally got to do it! Glad you gave ’em some affection!
