Question regarding a sailor and a penguin

Posted to WritersAndGenres

I am presently writing an encyclopedia about everything related to penguins, i.e. also relating to penguins in literature. Someone told me that in one of Burroughs' books he describes a sailor who has/keeps a real penguin in his cabin. I have gone through many of his books but could not find it. I must have missed the book in question or must have read badly. Either way, I still have not found that penguin's sailor. Can anyone help me to the title of the book, if there is such book?
