A SeaWorld penguin who was given a custom wetsuit because of feather loss is finally growing a new coat of her own.

For about three months, the female Adelie penguin named Wonder Twin rocked a custom wetsuit from SeaWorld's aviculture and wardrobe teams. The suit mimicked her natural coat of feathers so she could regulate her body temperature.

Now, according to a statement from SeaWorld, the 26-year-old penguin has successfully grown back her coat of feathers, and will be ditching the wetsuit, which was so last season anyway.
