  1. Can Pierre still swim? Does he ever go in the water?

  2. Yes, in fact Pierre just recently replaced his feathers again. He is often seen swimming in the early mornings.

  5. Absolutely. The penguins will swim as much as four to six hours depending on the bird. The best times to look for swimming activity is early morning, and around feed times.
