Animals Video

These penguins hopped their way down a flight of stairs in a cute viral clip.

Claudie Layton was on hand to capture the critters at Two Oceans Aquarium in Cape Town, South Africa, in December 2019.

The viral video shows the waddle of penguins reach a set of stairs and traverse their way down.

In doing so, the penguins outstretch their wings and hop down each step.

Claudie said: “I was blown away – delighted and really moved by the relationship between the penguins at the staff.

“The penguins are really like little people.

“They all have different personalities – some are naughty, some are shy, some are curious, some are really affectionate and just want to cuddle.”
