Friday Fun: Penguins on a Plane!

Email   PrintPrint

They’re better (and more adorable) than snakes on a plane, that’s for sure. Via Yahoo News comes this video of a couple of penguins getting a quick chance to stretch their flippers on a Delta flight from Atlanta earlier this week.

The 6- and 12-year-old penguins were winging their way to New York to appear at a screening of the Frozen Planet series, which will be aired in the US on the Discovery Channel.
