Penguin surprises researchers by leaping into boat

A leaping penguin has surprised two Australian researchers who were collecting water samples in Antarctica.

The flightless bird shot up from underwater and into the researchers' rubber boat, checking out a few bags on board before it jumped back into the sea.

Researcher Matt McKay captured the incident on camera during a expedition in Newcomb Bay near Casey research station, a permanent outpost run by the Australian Antarctic Division.
