Penguins accidentally take incredible selfie after knocking camera over

Two Emperor penguins in Antarctica have been caught on camera appearing to try to take a selfie.

The birds filmed themselves at the Auster Rookery near Australia's Mawson Antarctic research station - which is the country's first station in the continent.

The camera was already rolling when one of the penguins kicked it and angled it directly at its face.

They joked: "It didn't take long for the naturally curious birds to seize the opportunity for a selfie". At the end of the 38-second clip, the penguins hilariously shake their heads at each other, nearly looking disgusted with this human technology that has littered their colony.

Because everyone has that one friend, another penguin soon nudges its way into the frame.

The camera was left on ice by Eddie Gault, who is a member of the Australian Antarctic Division.

Emperor penguins are said to be native to Antarctica and are also the largest of the species.

A couple of curious penguins have captured a selfie that puts Ellen's Oscars one to shame.

Two from the North Pole are going viral on the internet after they took selfies on camera left by a human.

At the time, Slater had been visiting the Tangkoko-Batuangus Nature Reserve on the Indonesian island of Sulawesi to shadow a troupe of macaques. It was like the joy of seeing your new baby learn about something new and becoming enlightened with a new toy.
