Injured African Penguin

An African (Jackass) Penguin walking between workers in the Cape Town shipyard. There are two scars on its body: one is located under the left wing, the other one on the belly. They look like tooth prints, probably the penguin managed to escape from a shark or seal attack.

However, the African penguin population is in free fall mainly due to sardines overfishing, according to the studies:
