We saw African Penguins in the wild for the first time ever and it was fabulous!  Everything they do is super duper cute and I can’t stand it!  This really is the most adorable thing we’ve seen so far on this trip.  These creatures, formerly named Jackass Penguins due to the braying noise the males make, live on Boulder’s Beach in Simon’s Town.  They usually mate for life.  I could say more but the pictures are better.

I know. Adorable.
