Time and again, adorable videos of penguins have amused netizens. And the latest one doing rounds on social media is probably one of the best so far. The 26-second clip features two colonies of penguins briefly stopping for a “chat” while on their way to and from the sea.
According to a DailyMail report, Andrea Barlow, the director of the Falkland Islands Museum and National Trust filmed the Rockhopper penguins at the Falkland Islands.
In a tweet, Barlow shared the video along with a caption that read, “The rockhoppers on the left are heading out to sea, the ones on the right are heading back to the rookery having been out at sea. I love the conflab they have when they meet… and the confused penguin at the end!!” Here, take a look:
