December 20,2005 LONDON -- A baby penguin thought to have been snatched from a zoo as a quirky festive gift is unlikely to survive until Christmas Day, his keeper warned Tuesday.
Toga, a three-month old jackass penguin, was stolen from Amazon World on the Isle of Wight in southern England on Saturday.

But it turns out that there actually is such a thing as a "jackass penguin." Who knew? I hope they find the poor little guy.
