Day 3: Rock, hop ‘n’ roll December 3, 2009

The SL rockhopper penguin (Eudyptes virtualis) is a rare species. It prefers snowy landscapes and icy ponds but has adjusted well to the predominantly tropical climate of Second Life. Rockhopper penguins originally received their name due to their tendency to hop over rocks and boulders rather than to climb over them awkwardly. SL rockhoppers have extended this behaviour and like to burst into spontaneous dance. They are very friendly and curious creatures, unless they encounter bling or certain free, adult prim attachments – in this case, you better watch out!
