Penguin Leaps Into Tour Boat to Avoid Being Eaten By Killer Whales!

A dinghy full of tourists saw the nature film of a lifetime, right in front of their eyes.

Travel blogger Matt Karsten and his wife Anna were taking a tour through the icebergs of the Gerlache Strait in Antarctica, when they saw the incredible chase unfold.
