SAN DIEGO, California (WABC) -- A penguin at the San Diego zoo can say his boots are made for waddling-- and that's just what he'll do.
Lucas is a 4-year-old African penguin who was born with a degenerative foot condition known as "bumblefoot."
And while it sounds as cute as this penguin looks-- it can be serious and lead to death.
Now Lucas has new orthopedic boots to help with his foot condition.
His custom shoes prevent sores from developing when he walks-- so he can have happy feet once again.
