Petrified Penguin Named "Kentucky"

Kentucky is getting all the limelight at a zoo in England.

A penguin, named Kentucky, is apparently afraid of the water.

The petrified penguin won't jump in and just stands on the edge shaking.

Zookeepers say he was born a runt and has a molting problem that makes the water too cold for him. His unusual phobia has made him quite the star.

To keep him from becoming a Kentucky fried penguin, zoo keepers are forced to pour water on the pool-shy guy and bring him his food by hand.
