But one challenge stops them in their tracks: a Giant petrel. They try to flee, but running isn’t an Emperor’s strong point. A slip is
all the petrel needs. The chick is grabbed by his neck feathers, but the down just falls away. They form a defensive circle, and prepare to stand their ground. Despite their chick-like
appearance, they are close to a metre tall. Quite a size, even for a Giant petrel. The chick towers to full height, protecting those behind. His defiance buys time. It’s a stand off. Then, as if from nowhere: an Adélie. The feistiest penguin in the world. He fearlessly puts himself between the chicks and the petrel. Even petrels don’t mess with Adélie’s. Their plucky rescuer accompanies the chicks to the sea.

    00:02 the Adelie was chillin'..eating pacefully, but he got tired of the Petrel's shit, and decided to help, even escorted the chicks for a while. True heroes sometimes wear tuxedos.
    BTW. That emperor chick sure knows how to look buff!
