Penguin travels thousands of miles each year to visit man who saved it

Mar. 10, 2016

Who knew a penguin could take the title of man's best friend?

But that is just what a Brazilian man has found with a little Magellanic South American penguin nicknamed Dindim.

Joao Pereira de Souza a 71-year-old retired bricklayer, found Dindim off the coast of Rio de Janiero covered in oil and starving on a beach. De Souza nursed the penguin back to health. And they formed an inseparable bond.

As the Wall Street Journal reported in October, Dindim disappears into the ocean for months at a time. But for the last four years, the penguin has been coming back to see De Souza, the man who saved his life.
