Inside a Penguin's Brain

Ever wonder what goes on in a penguin's brain? Well in Fluffy's there was an infection that was causing him to wobble and not be able to preen. Vets at the University of Minnesota's Vet School performed the first ever MRI on a penguin to determine this and once treatment with antibiotics was started, Fluffy made a dramatic improvement.

The prognosis is excellent for Fluffy, who at 18 is middle aged for a penguin.
