From Penguins on a Plane to Penguins on Live Webcam

March 16, 2012 at 2:06 PM | by | ()

This week, a couple penguins took a few steps down the First Class aisle onboard a Delta flight and the footage went viral. Meanwhile, The Discovery Channel has installed a live Penguin Cam in the enclosure at the San Diego Zoo, keeping 24-hour watch over the waddling residents in celebration of the March 19 premiere of the new show "Frozen Planet."

The first time we tuned in to the cam, there were another 2,682 people also online, staring in at the 300 penguins (of 5 species) at the zoo. That's crazy, but it attests to the continued popularity of the tuxedo-d cutiepies. Oh, and the camera goes beyond just passively staring at the birds; there's underwater viewing and Q&A sessions:

You are watching Penguin Cam: live video of the "Penguin Encounter" at SeaWorld® San Diego. Stay tuned for penguin feedings throughout the day, and don't miss our live Q&A sessions every Monday from noon to 12:30 p.m. ET starting Monday, March 19.

It's Friday. Zone out here.
