    Q1) What if the Man dies, what happens to the Penguin – Penguins live about 20 years, so who says the man will die first.

    Q2) You should tag the penguin to see where it goes – Who would want to? this is probably a rare thing to happen, there is no real need to tag the penguin.

    Q3) The Penguins name is DinDin not JinJing – Maybe so, I am not sure, but many reputable companies such as Wall Street Journal, reported it as JinJing, just google it.
    As one viewer "corisco tupi" stated – The fact that English-speaking news sources misspell the portuguese language nickname given by the Brazilian fisherman, should not come as a surprise. "DinDin" pronounced by a Brazilian with an accent from Rio will sound like "JinJin" to American ears, hence the confusion.

    Q4) Title says he swims 5000 miles, but your not sure – Correct they are not sure, but it is presumed he swims 5000 miles round trip from Joao to breeding grounds and back.

    Q5) I thought Penguins only lived in cold places like Antarctica – No they live all over the southern hemisphere, including Victoria Australia where temperatures get up to 45 degrees, here is my follow up video to explain –

    NEW VIDEO = Penguins Don't Live Just in Antarctica – Penguin Parade Australia
    For all those who thought Penguins only lived in Antarctica or cold snowy enviroments.

    ►if you have more unanswered questions please ask and I will try and give you an answer

  2. Awww the ending of them on the beach such soulmates, blessings to all the deep and genuine friendships out there

  3. Animals remember forever if we help them once ….. and human forgets even we help them continuously…. sad fact …. but still I love everyone … keep helping and smiling always … god bless everyone:-)

  4. My Favourite animal is penguin and I wish I had a penguin as a pet. it's better than girls cause they suck and their disgusting.

  5. Wish I has these type of friends who would do the same but animals understand human beings better than we do nowadays it makes all sense to me

  6. Everytime I see a touching beautiful story, I can't just enjoy the moment. My mind always lead me to imagine of how sad it would be when this will end someday.

    I'm too scared to build a relationship in my life, because I know I wouldn't be able to face the ending. Does everyone feel the same? 😣

  7. One day one of them is not showing up. Waiting… 1 month, 2 months, 6 months, 1 year, 2 years, 3 years, then you realize that one of them has gone. 😭😭😭😭😭

    This reminds me with my cat,
    I remember when I open gate, it accidently run over my cat when he sleep on the rail, I tried my best to save him but it caused him limping 😭🤧
    I remember when he crawl on top of me wake me up in the morning, waiting for me back home from school.
    One day he is missing. I stay awake waiting the whole night, I stare at the empty bowl, I fill the bowl, the food remains there, 1 day, 2 days, 1 week, 2 weeks, 1 month he never came back. Wherever he is, I wish him well 😭🤧😭
    thank you for reading…

  8. “Truth is, nobody really knows where he goes…”

    I’m sorry, I thought I clicked on the video that said that a penguin swims 5000 miles every year to see the man who saved him. This is just the video of a penguin who swims off and returns every year, but in this video the people just were speculating that the penguin MAY swim up to 5000 away every year. And I know I must’ve clicked on the wrong video or something because if not that would mean this title is misleading, or……


    What a shame that would be to do to an already amazing story…

  9. I think this penguin made a hard time when he was looking for the guy who saved him so it's not only 5,000 miles the penguin traveled.

  10. I'm sure if the man dies first, they can show his body to the penguin so it at least knows why he can't see the man anymore. However, if the penguin dies first the poor man will never know and wait by the beach until he dies😭
