A few hundred thousand Magellanic penquins at Estancia San Lorenzo near Punta Norte. Adorable as always. The oddest thing is that they dig little caves in the ground in the desert. I was expecting them all to be hanging out on the beach, but they were everywhere including up to several hundred meters inland. Did I mention it was a desert? Desert cave penquins. I'm pretty sure we weren't supposed to touch them, but I couldn't help it. I figured tickling a penquin might be the cutest thing I ever see. Turns out I was wrong, it just makes them hiss angrily.
