All penguins are native to countries south of the equator, which has made it a chore for countries in the Northern Hemisphere to acquire the flightless birds. Since they are a major draw for the public, ranking just below tiger cubs and mating pandas, it is important that zoos always have a fresh stock of penguins on hand. To make sure they are never short of penguins, a zoo in Kaunas, Lithuania has successfully created a penguin that grows from seeds. By combining penguin DNA with the genetic material of a ficus, scientists produce a black and white seed the size of a golf ball, which, with proper water and sunlight, will produce a living penguin in as little as six weeks. These pictured her are roughly 4 weeks old, and still have roots attached to their feet, rending them immobile. The site of a penguin pulling up roots and taking their first steps is usually witnessed by large crowds, who gather round the clock to be present at the moment the penguin’s first adorable waddle.
