Yep, belly bopping. When it comes to fighting over rocks and stuff, along with some biting and verbal sqabbles, the Adelie’s bop each other around with their chubby little bellies.
I told you I would try and get some video footage of it to share and I am delivering. This is actually a short clip from the film Cry of the Penguins. It’s an old movie from 1971 starring John Hurt and it actually has a lot of great Adelie penguin footage in it, not sure if some of the footage is old documentary stuff or if it was all shot specifically for this film. It’s a pretty good movie too, a somewhat shallow scientist guy ends up taking a job alone in Antarctica studying the penguins and has some time to reflect on his life a bit, while trying to keep sane.
