    The Australian Antarctic Division has posted a clip featuring a couple amusing penguins near the Auster Rookery, home to a large emperor penguin colony.

    Two emperor penguins in Antarctica have filmed a short video of themselves after coming across a camera left on the ice by a human. Eddie Gault, a member of the Australian Antarctic expedition, left the camera on the ice when he visited the rookery, and it didn't take long for the naturally curious birds to seize the opportunity for a selfie. The camera was recording when the fluffy fellows approached it and turned it to their faces.
