This Hilarious Penguin Selfie Will Make Your Day

This Hilarious Penguin Selfie Will Make Your Day

Australian Antarctic expeditioner, Eddie Gault left a camera to observer the birds who quickly investigated, and posed, for the camera. The video was filmed at Auster Rookery, the Australian Antarctic Division in the North Pole near Mawson research station.

The program, which shared the video Thursday, said "it didn't take long for the naturally curious birds to seize the opportunity for a selfie".

Australia's Antarctic Division works in the Antarctic to advance the country's scientific, environmental and economic interests in the region through its research, and according to them, the Emperor is the largest of the 18 penguin species.

The video has been viewed more than 260,000 times.

The camera was already rolling when one of the penguins kicked it and angled it directly at its face. For about half a minute, the two chirp and cock their heads inquisitively at the screen, before perking up and shaking their heads (and bellies) repeatedly.

The shot clearly shows a cluster of penguins shuffling past in the background, but one emperor appears to want all the glory. Then, this penguin selfie will be the best selfie you'll see this week!

I duly moved away and bingo, they moved in, fingering the toy, pressing the buttons and fingering the lens. A macaque monkey captured a series of selfies that went viral, even sparking a lawsuit over whether the animal could own rights to its images.
