WTF IS THAT?!: Curious Penguin Suddenly Not So Cute

April 14, 2015


In I'll never look at penguins the same way again news, this is a shot of an Adélie penguin in Antarctica trying to take a bite of photographer Gordon Tait's camera. I never knew penguin's mouths were so full of scary. I guess those fish don't chew themselves up. And neither do chicken fingers, which is why my mom has to cut them into little bites for me now so I won't choke. I almost died at TGI Fridays so many times before that.

Thanks to KM, who's smart enough to know those aren't actually teeth, they're soft spines that help guide prey, which the penguins swallow whole, into their stomach. You just got learnt!
