cute jumping penguinPenguins are known for living in freezing climates, sliding on their bellies, eating tons of fish and all the while being completely adorable. One thing that these flightless birds are not known for are their Kobe-like hops. Their tiny little legs makes it seem like they aren't capable of completing a successful long jump.

The penguin in this video attempts to lay this stereotype to rest by making a giant leap of faith across a deep crag at Boulders Beach in South Africa. It takes him a second to gather his courage but when you have Chariots Of Fire by Vangelis as your background music it is difficult to fail. This cute little guy is no doubt a inspiration to all of his fellow penguins.

UPDATE: Now we've got penguins on commercial airline flights?!
