Chinstrap Penguin Walking Over Stones

World Travel Tales - Chinstrap Penguin Walking Over Stones - Antarctica

Antarctic Peninsula, Antarctica

Penguins are super agile swimmers who are able to dart in the opposite direction in an instant if being hunted in the water. But on land it's an entirely different story. They are clumsy and awkwardly flop onto their bellies to slide when the walking is too tough.

This chinstrap penguin negotiates the large round boulders of the beach in order to get to the surf.
