I’m pretty sure even the toughest, manliest, hairiest beast of a biker can’t help but smile when a bunch of penguins are playing and skidding around on the ice, and the reason for it is twofold: they’re adorable. And they’re hilarious.
Penguins are very social creatures who spend about half their time on land and the other half in water. Although the birds we’re used to seeing in movies like Happy Feet are native to frozen regions like Antarctica, penguins also live in warmer climates such as the Galapagos Islands.
Generally, the species found in cold climates are the biggest, such as the Emperor Penguin.
All five Antarctic species–emperors, kings, Adélies, gentoos and macaronis are represented at the SeaWorld exhibit “Penguin Encounter”, which is streaming live feed throughout the month of April. That means you can sit in the comfort of your own home and watch these awesomely adorable little guys waddle around and play until your heart’s content.
I think my favorite is the macaroni, named for an old-fashioned men’s hairstyle. You have to be boss to pull off that look.
