Have you ever seen a yellw penguin? Well, Yves Adams, a wildlife photographer revealed that h spotted a yellow penguin during an island trip in South Georgia. He took to his Instagram to share pictures of the rare creature and said that it was the first time ever that he spotted a yellow penguin. Sharing the story, Adams revealed he won nature's lottery after he spotted te beautiful creature. Adam's team initially attributed the colour mutation to being albino. Only later, in discussion with ecologists on the expedition ship, did they consider that  the condition could be more complex. His team contacted Hein van Grouw, curator at the UK Natural History Museum's Department of Life Sciences, who said the penguin could be an 'ino-bird' or a 'similar mutation'.
