    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.

      Enough Encroachment Already! Baby Jumbo Hilariously Kicks Out Interloper

      It is said that elephants never forget but this angry, young pachyderm in particular seems to have been born with some sort of collective memory and is instinctively aware of all the troubles its kind has had to suffer at man's behest and it isn't going to stand it any longer - so, though young, it teaches man a lesson.
