Meet Mumble – the confused Chinese chicken who thinks he’s a penguin.Instead of scratching in the ground and roosting on a perch at night, Mumble walks around waddling from side to side.Farmer Lu Xi got the bird as a chick, reports CEN. “He only has little wings, just like a penguin, which he sticks out when he walks. I guess that’s why he never flies,” he said.

It meant that researchers for the British Antarctic Survey were able to locate every colony on the continent for the first time ever, reports the Daily Telegraph.
