'Criminal' Penguin Caught On Camera

By Gerard @presurfer
A 'criminal' stone-stealing Adelie penguin has been captured on camera by a BBC film crew. The footage they captured shows a male penguin stealing stones from its neighbour's nest.
The birds build their stone nests to elevate and protect their eggs from run-off when the Antarctic ice melts. Males with the best nests are more likely to attract a mate, so, in a colony of half a million penguins, the best stones are highly prized.
