At the Vernadsky Station, researchers continue to marvel at the adorable little penguins that recently hatched. This time, polar scientists managed to capture on video the feathered parents feeding their offspring, reports the latest update from the National Antarctic Scientific Center.

What do little penguins look like

The little chicks confidently stand on their tiny legs but stay close to their parents. They snuggle up to them, pressing their backs against their parents and literally peeking into their beaks.
