First In The World: Yellow Penguin Spotted In The South Atlantic

This is the first time that the rare yellow penguin has been photographed.

According to the Independent, Belgian wildlife photographer Yves Adams took this photo on a small island in South Georgia in December 2019 during a two-month expedition. However, he posted the photo on Instagram earlier this month.

“While unpacking our rubberboats merely after landing on a remote beach on the island of South-Georgia, this leucistic King penguin walked up straight to our direction in the middle of a chaos full of Sea elephants and Antarctic fur seals, and thousands of other King penguins,” Adams wrote in his post. “How lucky could I be!”
