I don't know why we project human emotions onto animals… I guess it is kind of fun and we can relate. Who knows if this penguin is happy. Maybe it's totally pissed of and thinking, “It's so fracking cold!” but it just looks happy and carefree. But I guess it's a pretty good lifestyle to have no real predators except the 0.01% lightning chance of getting struck by an Orca. These aren't those emperor penguins from the movie that have to stand there in a blizzard forever. They are yellow-eyed penguins that just sit around, eat fish, and steal rocks from other yellow-eyed penguins.
