(KGO) -- A penguin at Japanese bird center has grown smitten with one of her keepers. She apparently insists on following him around wherever he goes.

The 10-year-old penguin spent months searching for a new partner after her mate died last year. That's when she turned her affection to the zoo keeper.

He says the relationship has started getting in the way of his work. She won't let him get near other penguins, and bites his hand if he tries to feed anyone else.
