Cool. But hopefully they take that camera off soon. Remember this study in Nature showing that the survival of king penguins wearing small bands on their flippers dropped by 16 percent, and that they produced 39 percent fewer chicks, and how this might have skewed the data on all kinds of research (notably, climate change)?
