Up close and penguin

We went to the new Zoo in Paris today - that is, the zoo at Vincennes, recently reopened after extensive renovation. Here is a Humbolt's penguin. But the sign, which I couldn't really understand, seemed to say that it's not a true penguin. But that the foolish English think it is. The French have two words, "manchot", and "pinguin". This is a manchot.
