A new look for Captain Hook
On 25th September 2012 a juvenile penguin was found on a beach in Strandfontein, weak and emaciated. He was brought to SANCCOB where he was examined upon admission and found to weigh only 1.5 kg, was in arrested moult and the hook of his beak was missing! As with every penguin admitted, he was given ID tags, which in his case was AP 540, but the rehabilitation team decided the name 'Captain Hook' suited him far better.
