Despite the dashing tuxedo, a penguin is no James Bond. Although really fun to watch, penguins have no sneaky spy skills and no English accent, though if a penguin did have an English accent he would make the best fancy butler. But all that aside, the typical penguin's terrible sneaking skills were recently brought to light in a video depicting penguins on the run from the Zoo.
A group of penguins attempted to escape their enclosure at Odense Zoo in Denmark, but they really didn't think it through. For starters, they didn't dry their feet before waddling on out. Wet, muddy footprints were everywhere, and all the zookeeper had to do was follow the footprints to the group of guilty penguins.
The little guys did make a final dash for it when they were discovered, but it was too late. Next time, they'll have to pitter-patter down the hall a lot faster, preferably whist wearing old-timey bandit masks, because that would just be amazing.
