Pierre, the penguin, who gained international fame because one year he needed a wet suit due to trouble with his molting, has passed away. Pierre, 33, was the oldest of a colony of Penguins at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco.
Pierre life story was made into a best-seller book called Pierre the Penguin: A True Story (Kindle, Harcover editions)
