Antarctica (REUTERS/AUSTRALIAN ANTARCTIC DIVISION/CBS Newspath) -- Cute penguins made surprise visits to a research boat in Antarctica on Tuesday (January 16).

Matt McKay, an expeditioner of an Australian Antarctic Program, captured the moment of a penguin popping onto a research boat when the team was collecting water samples for a research project in Newcomb Bay, according to Jessica Fitzpatrick, the Media Production Manager at Australian Antarctic Division.

A total of eight curious penguins dropped in to check the team's work on that day, Fitzpatrick added.
