Nicole had a very special weekend because she got to meet the adorable penguin named Dassen.

Atlantic City's Aquarium had Kerry and Shannon bring Dassen so we could meet her and learn about her species. As it turns out, penguins are dangerously close to becoming extinct so for the good of Dassen and all of her friends, make sure you pick up after yourself so that the debris does not end up in the ocean!

Some penguin fun facts are:

1. They have 100 feathers in every square inch of their body

2. Penguins poop every ten minutes

3. Penguins love shiny things and give them as gifts to get married
