A Penguin Live Stream to Make Your Day

March 5, 2012 6:41 pm

In case you haven’t noticed, TKGO has a slight penguin obsession. Which is why we have been playing this live stream throughout the work day (with the sound on and headphones in for the full effect, of course).

Live video from your Android device on Ustream

Discovery partnered with SeaWorld San Diego to put together the penguin cam in celebration of Frozen Planet, a show celebrating Antarctica and premiering March 18. If you miss the show, you can watch this penguin live stream through April.

Most of what I saw in Antarctica were the Adelie and Gentoo species, which is what the penguin cam has been showing lately. In case you need a little help identifying which is which, check out the TKGO penguin guide or the Discovery Channel penguin guide. (The Adelies I saw in Antactica did not have orange beaks like the Adelies in the San Diego SeaWorld exhibit, which makes them easier to distinguish from the taller Gentoos!)

Signing off with a favorite TKGO Antarctica shot. Get ready for penguins on March 18!
