Four of us hired a car to head to the largest penguin colony outside Antarctica. Over 350,000 penguins live in this rookery and I guess I expected to see thousands of penguins hanging out on the beach pooping or something.
Instead, we walked through a pasture area near the ocean and the penguins were in holes!
Penguins dig holes - that's so weird!
Penguins are fearless and came right up to us.
Currently they are sitting on their eggs and the chicks are supposed to begin hatching in about 2 or 3 weeks - I'm almost thinking about coming back to see the hatch... maybe.
Make sure you check out the videos below... theyre hillarious!
Next up - shooting photos of the elephant seals with National Geographic.
