the 71 years Joao Pereira de Souza from Brazil took place before 5 Years on the beach near his home village, that is near Rio de Janeiro, a penguin. The creature was completely contaminated with oil and severely malnourished. So de Souza took him home, cleaning his feathers, called his new penguin friend Dindim and nursed him back to health. After Dindim had recovered, took de Souza with him to the beach, to release him back into the wild – and so the penguin swam away.

But a few months later he came back! Now Dindim floats every year about something 8000 Spending km from its habitat at the southern tip of South America to spend time with de Souza. the Daily Mail reported:

He was astonished when, just a few months later, the penguin returned to the island where he recognised Mr de Souza and returned home with him.

Now, Dindim spends eight months of the year with Mr de Souza and spends the rest of his time breeding off the coast of Argentina and Chile. […]

‚But he wouldn’t leave, he stayed with me for 11 months and then just after he changed his coat with new feathers he disappeared,‘ recalled the retired builder. ‚Everyone said he wouldn’t return but he has been coming back to visit me for the past four years.

‚He arrives in June and leaves to go home in February and every year he becomes more affectionate as he appears even happier to see me.

Nice story, which has since been written by life. Friends 4 life!
