The group was quite astonished to watch 120,000 king penguins all at once. It was a rare sight already and the penguin with bright yellow plumage was like a cherry on the cake.
"We were so lucky the bird landed right where we were. Our view wasn't blocked by a sea of massive animals. Normally it's almost impossible to move on this beach because of them all. It was heaven that he landed by us. If it had been 50 meters away we wouldn't have been able to get this show of a lifetime", said Adams.
Speculations about the yellow creature
Scientists have found that he yellow pigment that is seen in the penguin's feathers is chemically distinct from all other molecules that are known to give color to feathers.
Another researcher, Daniel Thomas, was found saying that penguins use the yellow color to attract mates and it's possible that the yellow molecule is synthesized internally.
The penguin is certainly a treat to the eyes and we are sure you are just as curious to know more about this unique penguin. You can read about this rare discovery here.
