Penguins Parade Through Japan in African Attire

A group of black-footed African penguins recently shed their “tuxedos” and donned traditional African costumes to welcome 50 African leaders to Yokohama, Japan.  

The leaders were in the country to attend the Tokyo International Conference on African Development, reports Sky News. Yuichi Yoshimoto, a caretaker at Hakkeijima Sea Paradise amusement park, said he hoped the leaders would come see the dressed-up birds.

If that's not enough to convince them to visit the festive flock, then we don’t know what would do the trick.
