Penguins are perhaps the most popular birds on Earth, thanks to their incredible life cycles and charming tuxedo-clad appearances. Among their long list of superlatives, penguins can survive sub-freezing temperatures and gale force winds, dive over 1600 feet deep, hold their breath for more than 15 minutes, and survive without food for weeks by living off stored fat.

Most penguins like nothing better than to get their feathers wet with a quick swim, but this penguin doesn't seem too pleased with the water approaching. It is fearfully fleeing from the water after realizing the sea is way too cold! The ocean gives him shivers and he runs away from waves! The baby Gentoo was filmed at Cape Dolphin, Falkland Islands, flapping around hysterically on the cold sea-swept sand and kelp after taking its first dip in the ocean.

Later, the hydrophobic penguin is shown shaking its head in disbelief, much to the amusement of videographer Stephen Hope. The footage was caught by Falkland Islands Television (FITV) who claim they’ve ‘never seen anything like it’. Penguins are usually water-loving creatures. There are believed to be up to 120,000 breeding pairs of Gentoo penguins on the archipelago, according to a 2010 survey by the Falklands Conservation. These charismatic waddlers, who populate the Antarctic Peninsula and numerous islands around the frozen continent, are the penguin world’s third largest members, reaching a height of 30 inches and a weight of 12 pounds.
