A King penguin has just waddled into the history books by being named a brigadier in the Royal Norwegian Guard.
The penguin, called Sir Nils Olav III, is a resident of Edinburgh Zoo. He was awarded the prestigious title during a special ceremony at the zoo with 50 of Norway's guardsmen in watching on.
Penguins named Nils Olav have been the King's, and the Royal Guard's, mascot since 1972.
The first Nils Olav was named after King Olav V and Major Nils Egelien, who organised the adoption with Edinburgh Zoo.
No stranger to accolades, here's a picture of the Royal Norwegian Guard giving Nils Olav a knighthood in 2008.
