In July of 2015 a solo king penguin went for a walk across a field at Cape Pembrokeshire Nature Reserve in the Falkland Islands (near Stanley). The penguin was spotted there by a group of wild horses. They came over to check him out as he was walking towards them. Each horse greeted the bird with a sniff and gentle nuzzle. They had never seen a penguin before but seemed delighted to meet this one. The bird stayed with them for about an hour and then went on his way, back towards the ocean and his more typical penguin life.
