Penguins stumble across camera and pose for selfie

Penguins stumble across camera and pose for selfie

And now the world is learning that emperor penguins - at least these two good-looking critters at a rookery in Mawson Station, Antarctica - love selfie videos, too.

After inquisitively poking his beak down on the foreign object - a camera - the penguin tips the angle, and the camera switches to an opposite view of the keen-eyed creature's upper body.

When Australian expeditioner Eddie Gault left his camera on the ice the penguins quickly approached it and began investigating.

Emperor penguins (Aptenodytes forsteri) are the biggest of all penguin species, weighing up to 88 lbs.

Warner had delivered a stream of verbal abuse towards de Kock as the players walked off the field, but did not take well to de Kock's reply.

Penguins pull off a "happy feat".

A pair of emperor penguins in Antarctica filmed themselves with a camera that had been left on the ice by an explorer. The camera captured their curious looks and some close-up images of two penguins. They both curiously stare down at the lens before losing interest.

Then they did what any one of us would do - They took a selfie video of course! Emperor penguins wasted little time walking over to the camera to check it out, according to the Australia Antarctic Division website. "They loved the shutter noise, but most of all they loved their own faces, "chimping" away in what seemed to me to be total fun for them".
