Fascinating footage of mountaineering penguins in the Andes trying to search for a safe mountain nesting ground. Also featuring weird and wonderful animals such as the Andes possum, the littlest deer in the world known as the pudu, and the tiniest wild cat in existence - the cod cod. Brilliant nature video from BBC animal wildlife show Andes - The Dragons Back.
Pudu?!? She said pudu!
Great footage, but hope you all realize that these Magellanic nesting sites are in the coastal hills of south-central Chile, probably between the provinces of Biobio and ChiloÃ©. The script writer was in error when he or she called this site the "Andes Mountains;" that chain of magnificent mountains runs along the Chile-Argentina border about a hundred miles to the east -- far, far from the Pacific Ocean where these penguins feed.
