SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — A penguin in Arizona is using what makes her unique to help others.
Rosie is a 2-year-old African penguin inspiring others at the OdySea Aquarium in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Rosie was born with skeletal abnormalities that weakened her body. So her caregivers at the aquarium built a special sling to help her learn to walk.
"We knew very early in Rosie's development that she was a little different," one zoo worker told a room full of kids. "Has anybody in this group ever felt different? I know I have."
Rosie's caregivers say her sweet shuffle is used to teach kids that "different" really means "awesome."
