Penguin love is in the air along the shores of South Africa and I couldn't be happier.
The adorable PDA was captured when Twitter user @freakingdani's aunt decided to create an impromptu nature documentary on her recent holiday in South Africa and it's the best 16 seconds of footage I have seen in weeks.
my aunt just came back from South Africa and she sent me this video she took of this lil penguin couple 😭 pic.twitter.com/TkBpT5z9RV— 🐇 (@freakingdani) July 2, 2018
Animal videos are the currency of the internet - so naturally, people are freaking out... and so am I. Many are even comparing it to their own (sad) love lives.
This is how I wanna be with the love of my life 😭 https://t.co/TGxjBal76O— 🇧🇹 (@MigueJ311) July 3, 2018
These penguin out strolling the beach. Can't even get a txt back smh— Bassbrains (@ErickVilla41) July 3, 2018
Perhaps my favourite part of this Twitter exchange however, is the spontaneous zoology lesson that it sparked - as many people didn't know that penguins could even BE in South Africa. (To be totally honest, I'd never even thought about it myself.)
I’m sorry why is no one asking what 2 penguins are doing in South Africa— Nathan (@PrimNathanIOW) July 3, 2018
Contrary to popular belief. Penguins don't just live in Antartica. They also inhabit South America, Africa, Australia, & New Zealand.— Christmas In Harlem (@ChristmasUptown) July 3, 2018
I was today years old when I found out there were penguins in Africa https://t.co/9ZgTEKXHDN— Chad Pena (@chadpena24) July 3, 2018
There you go - love is all around us! Even if it's in the form of two lil penguins in Africa.
