Patagonian Penguin Always Returns from the Sea to Visit the Man in Brazil Who Saved Its Life
Adam Rifkin stashed this in Penguins!
I wonder if having a near death experience has shifted that penguin's entire reality.
He goes back into the water to search for a mate and a colony because his genes tell him to. He arrives at some place with more of his kind, he finds a female and begins to acclimate to a new group. He eats, sleeps, fucks, spends time with them.
But he has evolved. He knows death. He understands life in a way that these other penguins cannot.
And so he returns to his large bipedal savior time and time again. It's where he belongs now.
