Penguin cams film hunt for food under Antarctic ice
Research into penguins has plunged to new depths with the release of images which provide a glimpse of life beneath the Antarctic ice. Penguin cams have been able to capture footage which reveals a look into the life of a penguin that we rarely get to see.
Miniature penguin cams were attached to the backs of Adelie penguins by scientists from the French and Japanese national Antarctic programs before they went out to sea in search of food.
The penguin cams weighed between 15 and 22 grams and were recovered when the birds returned to their nests.
