Although penguins are incredibly adorable, their lives can be quite dangerous. They may look like nature’s happy pills, but they’re susceptible to predators just like any other animal.
In this delightful clip from BBC documentary Spy in the Snow’, we see a group of darling penguin chicks frolicking about in their clean, snowy home.
Their carefree day, on the other hand, is soon over as a huge petrel detects them and swoops in for the attack. The penguins are quaking with terror as they huddle together trying to protect themselves from the huge bird. It appears like a thriller when the animal approaches them aggressively. But thankfully, someone has noticed their suffering!
From afar, this unlikely hero has heard the penguin babies’ cries and rushes in to assist them. What follows is pure gold. We enjoy how fortunate the BBC team was while filming this incredible series of events. You must view the film yourself to fully appreciate this moment.
