A couple of penguins became internet sensations after taking video selfies in Antarctica with a camera left behind by an Australian expeditioner to let the birds' curiosity take over.

A member of the Australian Antarctic Program team, Eddie Gault, left a camera at the Auster Rookery - a penguin breeding ground - near Australia's Mawson research station on Antarctica, according to the Australian Antarctic Program.

The Australian Antarctic division posted the 38-second clip on its Twitter page March 7. The video has been viewed more than 84,000 times in a day and a half with netizens commenting about the curious penguins.
