Flying Galapagos Penguins Captured on Video!
Galapagos may be a living laboratory for evolutionary process, but no one, not even Charles Darwin himself, could have foreseen that Galapagos penguins could so easily take to the air.
But CNH Tours has to come clean here..... we're sorry to disappoint you. This isn't actually a case of spontaneous evolutionary adaptation to changing environments… but rather an unusual way to transport a penguin.
A video clip of a Galapagos penguin on board a commercial aircraft, being moved from San Francisco to San Diego aquarium, was recently posted. Apparently, its caretaker was given permission to take it on-board and to let it roam around the cabin. Someone captured the scene on video and posted it on Youtube. To see the video, click here.
