Cheyenne, Wyoming: Emperor the Penguin

Shipped from the Antarctic, Emperor the Penguin failed to arrive alive. That didn't deter his owner from displaying him as a mascot. There's another Wyoming Emperor the Penguin west on I-80 in Little America.

Emperor the Penguin.

Emperor the Penguin

The Little America hotel lobby in Cheyenne has been the unnatural realm of Emperor the Penguin for decades. The mascot from Antarctica is posed in a glass cabinet near the entrance. The original Emperor the Penguin rules a hallway of the Little America Hotel and Resort in Little America, Wyoming. Cheyenne's Emperor appears identical, but we don't know if it has a parallel tale of death in transit and taxidermy immortality.

Inside the hotel -- the Indian in the entrance is actually more interesting than the stuffed penguin.
