"A young emperor penguin, normally found in the Antarctic, has turned up on a New Zealand beach. It is a rare event, the first confirmed sighting of an Emperor penguin in New Zealand in 44 years. 'I saw this glistening white thing standing up and I thought I was seeing things,' said Christine Wilton, who found it while walking her dog. The department of conservation is baffled by how it arrived, saying it may have taken a wrong turn." [editor's note: Some days, ya gotta go with "just plain cute!" - SAT] (06/21/11)
