These penguins found a camera in Antarctica and captured a great 'selfie'

Cheeky penguins snap 'selfie' after finding camera in Antarctica

Australian Antarctic expeditioner, Eddie Gault left a camera to observer the birds who quickly investigated, and posed, for the camera.

Two penguins near the Auster Rookery - which is home to a large emperor penguin colony - happened upon the camera and took a selfie, The Washington Post reported. "Curious Emperors have been captured on film at the Auster Rookery near Australia's Mawson research station by expeditioner Eddie Gault", the Antarctic Division wrote while sharing the video on social media. It has more than 246,000 views as of Friday morning.

"Because everyone has that one friend", quips the paper, another penguin soon nudges its way into the frame.

Wednesday evening the Antarctic Division tweeted out a video of what life is like in Antarctica.

Sunshine Daydream: Florida Bill Would Make Daylight Saving Time Year-Round
It is unlikely Congress would take up any proposal to allow Florida alone to make daylight saving time permanent, Yates said. It makes sense to want more daylight hours when the weather is nice and people are able to be outside and enjoy it.

It's not the first time, of course, that an animal selfie has made headlines - or even the first time a penguin in Antarctica has captured itself on camera. Then, this penguin selfie will be the best selfie you'll see this week!

This incident and the images of the penguins are also reminiscent of the infamous "monkey selfie" that was taken in 2011 by Naruto, a male crested black macaque, using a camera which belonged to wildlife photographer David J. Slater.

The shot clearly shows a cluster of penguins shuffling past in the background, but one emperor appears to want all the glory. Notably, he specified in the book that "the shutter was pressed by the monkey".
