  1. Don’t understand. What makes him a jackass?

  2. Hi Nikki. “Jackass” Penguin is another name for the African or Blackfooted Penguin. It got the nickname from the sound it makes which sounds like a donkey (or jackass) braying.

    It probably would have been more appropriate to use its proper name but at the time, I just used whatever name that came to mind. There was no ill intent on calling this gorgeous bird an idiotic fool at all.
