A featherless Humboldt penguin in a wetsuit walks past king penguins in the enclosure at the Jurong Bird Park in Singapore. The 10-year-old penguin has experienced continued feather loss since 2010 and is being treated with customized wetsuits. The suit acts like a natural feather covering, providing warmth and insulation which also helps new feathers grow and prevents molting.

The world has lost 97% of its total tiger population in only 100 years.
