Daily Cute: Baby Penguin Decides a Man’s Belly is a Comfy Place to Hang

Daily Cute: Baby Penguin Decides a Man’s Belly is a Comfy Place to Hang

This baby penguin is so curious that he has no problems with exploring the silly human with a camera. Standing next to him isn’t quite close enough, though, so he hops on the man’s belly to get a closer look. What would you do with a penguin on your stomach?

I´m envy... Even though, I hope those penguins don´t get any disease from humans... Agrrrr

An amazing video but sadly it is not in the penguins best interest for humans to be interacting that closely with them.

Of course, the baby penguin is adorable, and I would like to be there with him.
Yet, I am always somewhat concerned about wildlife becoming habituated and trusting of humans, unless it's me, of course. After reading the recent article of a man luring a trusting cat by calling it to him, as if to pet him and then, laughingly, throwing him 20 feet, with the intent to maim and/or kill. I don't know what has happened after the cat's hospitalization, but he was severely injured and close to death. There are so many sadistic sickos in this world who take advantage of trusting animals that become used to humans. As much as we may enjoy communicating and brushing up against wildlife, it is, generally, safer for them to fear us and keep their distance.

Les pingouins n' ayant aucun contact avec les humains ( à part certains scientifiques qui ne font que les observer ) n' ont pas peur d' eux. S' ils savaient toutes les horreurs, les massacres, les tortures, les meurtres que les hommes font aux animaux, ils n' auraient peut-être pas la même réaction. Merci pour cette belle vidéo, mais n' oublions pas que ces pingouins souffrent de la pollution et du réchauffement climatique. Ils sont eux aussi en danger.

This man lived out a dream I never even had before watching this video!
