The park created a one-of-a-kind wetsuit for Adelie, a female penguin that recently experienced feather loss. It prevented her from being able to naturally regulate her body temperature, according to officials.

So, SeaWorld’s aviculture team decided to create Adelie a wetsuit that would mimic her former coat of feathers.

The park’s wardrobe department designed and sewed the wetsuit, which was custom-fit just for her.
