A group of scientists have been trying to study penguins without disturbing them, and they may have found the cutest way possible of doing it: rovers disguised as baby penguins. These penguin-bots are able to get close to the penguins without raising the alarm or stressing out the penguins, which will allow scientists to collect data about them in their most natural state.
And best pals Sage and Onion are ready, thanks to hand-knitted jumpers purchased on eBay by their new owner, Sue Christy.
She rescued the hens from a factory farm where the conditions were so poor they had lost all of their feathers.
"When they come out of the farm some of them, as cruel as it sounds, just look oven-ready," Christy said. "'They have never known day light and they have never known fresh air and when we get them they are in a really sorry state. 'They are also very cold because they are so bald. I just feel so sorry for them."
Remember Anzac the joey and Peggy the wombat, the marsupial orphans who were rescued and became besties?
