Unlikely Rescue in the Antarctic

In this clip from the BBC documentary series Spy in the Snow, we see a group of emperor penguin chicks traveling in a group. I guess they are learning to get around without their parents. But they are threatened by a petrel, who would love to have one of the penguins for lunch. Then it gets weird. By the time this dramatic scene is over, you'll think you've seen an outtake from Happy Feet. (via Tastefully Offensive)

We see penguins as clumsy and cute, but remember they are fierce predators when in the sea.
