So Wendell is the only penguin in a certain place for a few minutes, but he had companions before that, and again after a few minutes?

Were his companions before other penguins? were his companions afterwards?

Is what he did during that few minutes that he was 'the only one' relevant? Why he was the only one?

Is this in a penguin's natural environment? in a zoo? in some place that penguins are unusual?

Was Wendel the first penguin to hatch of all the other penguin eggs? So he would have been the only baby penguin... until a couple minutes later another egg hatched?
