Curious penguins find research camera, take ‘selfie’ video

(WSVN) - Talk about a “cool” photo op!

Two emperor penguins in Antarctica stumbled across a camera left in the ice Wednesday night by expeditioner Eddie Gault.

The curious birds flipped it over to face skyward and stared into the camera, taking a “selfie” video in the process.

The Australian Antarctic Division posted the 38-second clip to their Twitter page on Thursday, where it has already gotten over 177,000 views.

The video was captured at the Auster Rookery near Australia’s Mawson Research Station.
