Penguins find camera on ice during Antarctic expedition, 'take selfie'

Cheeky penguins snap 'selfie' after finding camera in Antarctica Penguins find unattended camera, snap a fabulous selfie
Frank Williams | 09 March, 2018, 21:06

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

Mawson research station is Australia's first continental station and the longest continuously operating station south of the Antarctic Circle, while the Auster Rookery is home to thousands of breeding penguins and is one of around 40 such colonies on the continent.

The penguins are seen on video walking up to the camera, then looking down at it and inspecting it cautiously, for a while, offering viewers a rare closeup. At the end of the 38-second clip, the penguins hilariously shake their heads at each other, nearly looking disgusted with this human technology that has littered their colony.

Emperor penguins (Aptenodytes forsteri) are native to Antarctica, with the emperor being the largest of the 18 penguin species.

WTA Indian Wells: Naomi Osaka stuns Maria Sharapova in straight sets
Open champion and a wild card entry here, won her first WTA main draw match, a 6-2, 6-2 victory over Pauline Parmentier of France. The Australian received a bye into the second round and beat the 22-year-old in their only clash in 2016.

A couple of curious penguins have captured a selfie that puts Ellen's Oscars one to shame.

The camera was placed there by expeditioner Eddie Gault.

Hilarious footage shows the webbed feet of a penguin shuffling into view and stumbling across a foreign object - a camera.

At the time, Slater had been visiting the Tangkoko-Batuangus Nature Reserve on the Indonesian island of Sulawesi to shadow a troupe of macaques. They played with the camera until, of course, some images were inevitably taken!. "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".
