Penguins Aren’t As Dumb As You Think Because They Know How to Move Like Cars in Traffic

Look how coordinated they are!

Penguins are the ultimate team players, because as it turns out, when they waddle in a huddle they move just like cars. Basically, when one of them takes a step, that triggers a coordinated wave throughout the whole group — and it’s very similar to how cars inch forward in a traffic jam, New Scientist explains.

The above video explains how this works — and also features some very dramatic music. So grab your headphones and prepare for the most riveting penguin-related viewing experience since March of the Penguins.

Frightening rhetoric of the author of this text. It is not that we try to imitate the nature, and not the nature to imitate the human creation? The nature is perfect. We humans destroy it thinking that what we do is better. Sad.

Who said that penguins are "dumb"? The only thing thing dumb is the person who wrote that idiotic headline......
