🐧 Nesting Penguins Nap Almost 10,000 Times a Day!

Imagine taking a quick nap and waking up feeling refreshed, only to do it again over 10,000 times a day.

The reason behind this unusual sleep schedule is their harsh living environment.

With constant threats from predatory birds and aggressive neighbors.
