Downy emperor penguin chicks were spotted going on an “icy school excursion” at the Auster rookery, East Antarctica.

The group was followed by an adult penguin while another one slid across the scene oblivious to the ordinary activity.

The “chicks are growing up fast. By December, they’ll be as big as their parents!”, the Australian Antarctic Program said.
