Such a funny video! This penguin doesn't seem too pleased with the water approaching it. It is fearfully fleeing from the water after realizing the sea is way too cold! 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 breading 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.
