A colony of 9000 penguins…count it…9000 PENGUINS…made its first contact with humans when a group of explorers found them in Antarctica.
Expedition leader Alain Hubert and two others rode snowmobiles across the icy continent to where they believed the penguins were living. Satellite images caught the colony in 2009 but there was no proof until the expedition.
The penguins were discovered in December and the team recorded video of the Emperor penguins!
Doesn't make sense?!?!?! Well let us (by us we mean scientists) explain!
Scientists once estimated that over 100 million species of plants and animals roam the earth. With a number that high, many believed that there was no way to discover and name all of them before some went extinct.
Not so fast!
Recently, researchers have found that this may not be the case. With the increase in taxonomists, it is possible to name all of the world's unknown species?!?!
The two were spotted hanging out super low-key style in Downtown McAllen in Texas. The pic isn't perfectly clear, but we think we can all agree it looks an awful lot like them both!!
Selenita is there as she has two upcoming shows in Texas this weekend, and the Biebs is there because…well…because Selenita is there! Well, that and maybe he needed a little vacay after his rough deposition!
Confirming this hangout, Selenita actually just tweeted about being in Hidalgo, which is the county where McAllen is located:
