The darkness

This all black penguin was recently photographed on the island of South Georgia near Antarctica. They say this one of a kind baller has a pigmentation oddity called melanism. It is found in other birds but very rare to see no white feathers on this one at all.
He is like the Wesley Snipes of penguins. He has been photographed spending a good deal of time in igloos with many of the white chested female penguins which has made things a bit tough for the rest of the males. It has been reported that although this South Georgian player has the entire coast on lock down, he has to hire out help to assist in hunting as he can not swim.
