Pilfering penguins

People often view penguins as cute, cuddly and cheeky little animals. The video below might support the last of these qualities.

This video is taken from the BBC’s frozen Planet series . This clip shows footage of  Adélie penguins (Pygoscelis adeliae) with some bold nest building strategies of Adelie penguins, here some males are showing shameless competitive behaviour over nest building. All this in order to build a nest to be proud of, so maybe sometimes cheats do prosper (Taylor 1962).
