This Hilarious Penguin Selfie Will Make Your Day

Expeditioner Eddie Gault captured the penguins at the Auster Rookery, near Australia's Mawson research station.

"It didn't take long for the naturally curious birds to seize the opportunity for a selfie", Australian Antarctic Division explained. For about half a minute, the two chirp and cock their heads inquisitively at the screen, before perking up and shaking their heads (and bellies) repeatedly.

According to National Geographic, emperors are the largest of all penguins, averaging 45 inches tall and weighing as much as 88 pounds.

In the 37-second clip, you see a couple of Emperor penguins who stumbled across a camera and that's when the selfie magic happened. They live on the Antarctic ice and in the frigid surrounding waters, even breeding during the harsh winter season.

They may not fly, but penguins are apparently really good at capturing a selfie.

When researcher Eddie Gault momentarily placed his camera on the ground it's unlikely that he was expecting to end up with one of the best selfies ever taken.

The camera is rolling as the two penguins waddle over. But it seems like humans clicking their own photos are now passé.
