I didn't even know he was that old until I read about his death. What's the lifespan of a penguin usually like?

^The article I found when I googled Grape-kun for context on this thread gave both his age and the average lifespan for his species in captivity at 20 years.

This thread is the first I've heard of Grape-kun, but being a Linux user and a fan of Disgaea, I'm quite fond of penguins, so his passing has hit me harder than most celebrity deaths requiring me to use google to have any idea why the deceased was famous.

Totally wishing I could fire up my PS Vita and make a top-tier, Genius level Prinny named Grape-kun in his honor.
Just so you know, I am blind.

I will criticize every single artist that humanizes a distinctly non-human character or real-life animal and still claims to be creative in any facet because that is the opposite of creativity.

But I digress.

Sad that Grape died.

I was saddened when I heard of his passing the other day... I remembered that he was of old age back when he originally gained attention earlier this year, but I still wasn't prepared for the news. He may have lived a full Humboldt penguin lifespan of 20 years, but it's still sad to know that he's gone.

The genuine love and respect being shown for Grape-kun (including the illustration by the Kemono Friends character designer) has been amazing, though. It's made me feel even more emotional, really...
