Cameras were set up in the natural habit of the Gentoo penguin population for observation. When scientists watched the footage they saw something really unusual.
When viewers started watching these cuties, they didn't know what to look for.
Though cameras were placed everywhere, finding the "cause" of their decline was like finding a needle in a haystack.
However, during their time watching the penguins, viewers noticed something interesting: a giant poop party so big that it actually melted the ice, giving the penguins a place to lay their eggs.
And get down to bizzzzzness.
