Penguins are amazing.

The aquatic birds are known for being well adapted to their frigid Antarctic environments. However, they use more than just dense, downy, feathers to sustain themselves in those extreme landscapes. A video of Emperor Penguins shows how their social behavior, huddling, allows them to sustain the cold. Physicists investigated how penguins moved in their huddle as a traveling "wave" not unlike cars in a traffic jam.

The science behind their huddling is fascinating
