This penguin knows who his true friend is, and he keeps coming back.
Dindim swims 5,000 miles every year to visit the man who rescued him, greeting him like he’s a penguin, too.
This video of João Pereira de Souza and his best penguin friend depicts the inseparable bond of memory that his oceanic friend and him share.
In cases more often than not, animals remember those people who have helped them in the past, especially when it comes to nursing one back to health. This is certainly the case of Dindim, who’s traveled every year since 2011 like clockwork to return to say hello to Souza.
João Pereira de Souza found this oil-covered little guy and nursed this South American magellanic penguin back to life in 2011. Since then, the penguin has swam 5000 miles to Argentina once a year to visit his rescuer.
