Penguins Accidentally Took Selfie After They Found a Cam In Antarctica
(Everyone has the one friend who LOVES to take selfies)
Expeditions to Antarctica are constantly filled with surprises. Australian Eddie Gault went on an expedition there along with his cam to take photos of penguin colonies. Out of the fascinating photos he took, he also ended up having a photo of penguins taking a selfie.
While there, Gault visited Auster Rookery to record a group of Emperor penguins, leaving his camera near them to record their daily lives. After he left it, the penguins came close to the cam, one knocked it over and accidentally took a selfie along with other penguins.
Emperor penguins are the biggest penguin types on the planet, have an average height of 45 inches and can live to be 20 years old. Emperor penguins live in colonies and their breeding period is in Winter, when female penguins lay their eggs and leave them in the care of the male penguins.
“a penguin cannot become a giraffe, so just be the best penguin you can be.”
