American social media star Kelvin “Brother Nature” Peña, who is well-known for his uncanny ability to set animals at ease, was recently attacked by an African penguin when visiting Simon’s Town, Cape Town.

Brother Nature, who has more than 4.5-million social media followers, rose to fame for his short clips of various animal encounters he had. What sets the encounter video from his Cape Town visit apart from the rest, however, is that this was the first time he had been attacked by one of these animals.



Brother Nature began his Cape Town adventure by visiting a Cape Fur Seal, which he fed fish to from his very own mouth.



His second animal visit took place on Saturday, where he paid a visit to the Boulder’s Beach Penguin Colony, where he met a penguin named “Jermaine”.

“Look like you’ve got a lot on your mind today, bro. Why you standing there so stiff like that, man?” Brother Nature jested, knowing little of what was to come.



The video went viral on social media, was retweeted more than 80 000 times and was liked 400 000 times.

SANParks warns all who visit the colony never to touch or feed the penguins, which have been known to bite those who they find threatening.
