I would say it's a fake... Just a knot on a well tied string...

Is the penguin a forum member or does the credit go to Jim?  :P

It's very cold in the Antarctic: my guess is that it froze half way into the trick.

Sadly, the penguin seems sad about the trick.  He sure does a good job of holding the string even without fingers.
