Scientists build penguin robot to study animals

Posted: Updated:

ANTARCTICA (CBS 8) - There's a spy inside a colony of Emperor Penguins in Antarctica.

Scientists built a robot penguin to allow them to observe and interact with the real penguins without scaring them off. It's equipped with a camera, sensors and a scanning device to wirelessly send data about the animal closest to it back to researchers.

The penguins seem to have accepted the robot. They even sing to it.
