This is Tootsie, a young Magellanic penguin from the San Francisco Zoo. Apparently, she’s been feeling a little crummy, so she went to what might be the fanciest vet in San Francisco to get a CT scan.
How fancy is this vet? Well, they have valet parking. And, the times we have had to go there with some damaged animal or another, my husband has said to me “you know, we’ll never live anywhere as nice as this place.”
According to this completely non-sketchy looking website, a human CT scan can cost anywhere between a $1000-$10,000 bucks. We here are Slow News Day are hopeful that Tootsie has successfully set up her Covered California coverage so all that isn’t completely out-of-pocket.
