Lucas the Penguin is now waddling with more confidence.
- The San Diego Zoo resident had been dealing with an infection called bumblefoot, which causes swelling and lesions.
- As a result, no other penguins wanted to socialize with Lucas.
- A company called Thera-Paw made a mold of Lucas' foot to create an orthopedic boot that made walking easier.
- Zookeepers report that the four-year-old penguin is now socializing and has a girlfriend.
