Fauna: An Adorable Blooper Reel of Penguins Slipping on Ice
For Penguin Fail, above, the filmmakers behind the BBC documentary Spy in the Huddle combed through their mountain of footage to capture the most awkward and hilarious moments. With nearly a million views since the video went live on YouTube earlier this month, they have a viral hit on their hands.
You might think that these aquatic birds would be surefooted on icy terrain but they slip and tumble just like us bipedal humans. Luckily, thanks to their round construction, they seem to bounce rather than collapse. Some even seem human when they recover: They collect themselves, shake it off, and then look around to see if anyone else noticed.
Some of the penguin’s-eye-view shots in the film might have been captured with the “snowball cam,” one of many “spycams” John Downer Productions used in the making of the film.

Penguins (order Sphenisciformes, family Spheniscidae) are a group of aquatic, flightless birds living almost exclusively in the Southern Hemisphere, especially in Antarctica. Highly adapted for life in the water, penguins have counter-shaded dark and white plumage, and their wings have evolved into flippers.
Most penguins feed on krill, fish, squid and other forms of sealife caught while swimming underwater. They spend about half of their lives on land and half in the oceans.
Although all penguin species are native to the Southern Hemisphere, they are not found only in cold climates, such as Antarctica. In fact, only a few species of penguin live so far south. Several species are found in the temperate zone, and one species, the Galápagos penguin, lives near the equator.
