How do you study a wild animal in its natural environment?  You make a robot that looks and acts like the

animal! This is what a team of scientists created in order to study a colony of emperor penguins.  Not only

did the penguins act normal around the research tool, they “tried to talk to the rover and even made room

for it in huddles.”

Now that is how to study wild animals!

You have got to see this penguin robot – ADORABLE!
