I think we can all agree that penguins are some of the cutest creatures on the planet. I'm not sure if there is anyone on the earth that can look at a penguin without smiling. What happens, however, when a penguin discovers how cute it is? Well, let's find out by looking at a penguin who is named, most appropriately, Narcissus.
Narcissus definitely earns his name one afternoon as he is walking in his enclosure with some of his penguin friends. The happy bird looks to his right and is stunned by what he sees. A rather handsome penguin is staring back at him. Then, all at once, Narcissus realizes that the good-looking fowl he sees is his own reflection.
From that moment on, Narcissus just can't seem to get enough of his beautiful face. No matter how far he walks around the enclosure, Narcissus just refuses to look away from his reflection, going so far as to blow himself kisses. In fact, I'm pretty sure he tries to whistle at himself at some point. I guess the zookeepers are going to have to get this vain bird a mirror for his room! Watch the video, below, to see the hilarious reflection encounter for yourself.
