If you give a curious Emperor penguin a camera, it's probably going to try to take a selfie

Even in the far reaches of Antarctica, selfies exist.

Two Emperor penguins proved that the photography trend has reached the South Pole during a recent research outing at the Auster Rookery.

According to the Australian Antarctic Division, among those dropping by the bird breeding ground was Eddie Gault, an expeditioner from the group. Gault placed his camera down on the ice during his visit and it didn’t take long for the penguins to find the intriguing item.

As the above footage shows, two towering tuxedoed birds approached the camera and flipped it over to face skyward. Why? To take selfies of course.

Or at least that is what we can deduce based on how this duo mugs for the camera for close to a minute.
