Watch: Modern-day Doctor Doolittle gets "picked on" by an African penguin! Brother Nature Penguin

His scream may be the funniest thing you hear today, also… don’t mess with an African penguin.

 

Boulders Beach, South Africa – Kelvin Peña, an American social media superstar known as Brother Nature, was almost hilariously bitten by an African penguin.

Brother Nature gained traction in 2018 after the 18 year-old posted videos showing his love for deer and feeding them on Youtube. Those videos turned into countless radio interviews, a clothing line, an Uber endorsement and millions of followers.

He has also been dubbed as the Modern-Day Doctor Doolittle but apparently African penguins don’t have time for silly questions asked by American animal whisperers.

Brother Nature recently visited Cape Town and made his way to the penguin colony on Boulders Beach where a penguin hilariously “picked on” him.

“Boulders Beach is a sheltered beach made up of inlets between granite boulders, from which the name originated. It is located in the Cape Peninsula, near Simon’s Town towards Cape Point, near Cape Town in the Western Cape province of South Africa.

It is a popular tourist stop because of a colony of African penguins which settled there in 1982. Boulders Beach forms part of the Table Mountain National Park.

These African penguins are only found on the coastlines of Southern Africa – (South Africa & Namibia). These penguins are currently on the verge of extinction. As a result, the penguins are under the protection of the Cape Nature Conservation.”

Brother Nature posted a video to Twitter, which has had over 8 million views, showing a penguin chilling on the beach. He can be heard asking the animal random questions before being shown “in a polite way” to leave the penguin alone.

His scream may be the funniest thing you hear today, also… don’t mess with an African penguin.

Brother Nature also did not stop there! He followed up his tweet with a link to The Southern African Foundation for the Conservation of Coastal Birds (SANCCOB) explaining that sadly, African penguins are now an endangered species due to the uncontrolled harvesting of penguin eggs for food & guano scraping. He urged his 2 million followers to take the time to donate to the cause.

So thank you Brother Nature for making the world laugh but also for helping our African penguins.
