Thieving Penguin (VIDEO)
June 12, 2012 Leave a Comment
This clip from the amazing BBC series “Frozen Planet” shows us how closely related we are to animals.
Not only do we build a nice nest (or house in our case) in order to attract females, but some of us, when lazy, will steal from another human in order to avoid doing the work themselves!
The penguin in the video below is able to go behind his fellow penguin’s back and steal from his collection of rocks without the other penguin noticing. When the other penguin returns, he knows something is missing, but can’t figure out where it went. As the victimized penguin goes on the hunt for more rocks, the criminal penguin swoops in again and steals another! By the time the victim penguin returns, the criminal penguin has already blended back in with the crowd. Quite a sneaky criminal penguin.
It turns out, that penguins are actually pretty like-minded to us!
Check out the little thieving penguin criminal in action!:
