Peekaboo, Penguins!

People wanted to film penguins up close. So they hid cameras in some surprising places! Do you see the camera in this picture?

I Spy Penguins

Ocean waves crash upon the rocks. Rockhopper penguins jump out of the sea and squawk at each other. But one penguin doesn't make a sound.

The other penguins look at this odd bird. They don't know that it is not a penguin at all. It's a camera!

The Penguin Problem

People wanted to make a TV show about penguins. Instead of using regular cameras, they used cameras that look like three kinds of penguins. They also used cameras that looked like penguin eggs and snowballs. These kinds of cameras are called spy cams.

People have filmed penguins before, but it isn't easy. Some penguins are scared of people. People have tried to film penguins underwater, but the penguins just swim away. Humboldt penguins are so shy, people haven't been able to film them much at all.

A New Way to Film

But the penguins weren't scared of the spy cams! The cameras could get close to the penguins. The cameras filmed penguins swimming. They filmed penguins laying eggs. They even filmed the shy Humboldts!

Some spy cams looked a little too real. Birds called caracaras steal penguin eggs. One of these birds thought an egg cam was a real egg. The bird stole the egg cam! The egg cam filmed the sky as the bird flew away with it.

Eye on Spy Cams

Chick Cam

This camera was fluffy like an emperor penguin chick. The fluffy coat kept the camera from freezing.

Snowball Cam

This camera could roll around on its own. Some penguins followed it.

Humboldt Penguin Cam

Can you tell which penguins are real and which is the camera? The camera is the penguin on the left.
