Just call this little guy man's new best friend.
A tiny penguin at Matsue Vogel Aviary Park in southern Japan clearly developed an affinity for one of the zookeepers.
As the man slowly walked away and then jogged around in a circle on the zoo grounds, the animal would not let him get too far away, running quickly behind him so he couldn't leave his side.
In the adorable video posted to YouTube, the penguin runs right at the back of the zookeeper's heels as the man lets out a laugh and then leans down to pet his newfound pal.
Kinda makes you want a penguin of your own, huh?
