Live: Watch these insanely adorable SeaWorld penguins be adorable

There's a new breed of reality show stars looking to waddle into your heart.

While you were busy fawning over Suki the polar bear, the Discovery Channel set up an up-close-and-personal, 24-hour camera at the "Penguin Encounter" exhibit at SeaWorld San Diego.

Almost 300 penguins of five species (Adelies, emperors, gentoos, kings and macaronis) clad in their little penguin tuxedos will star in the Ustream session, which is meant to generate publicity for the March 18 premiere of "Frozen Planet" on the Discovery Channel.

The seven-part series shot over the course of four years, follows animal life at the North and South Poles. It will not feature these waddling stars and starlets, but their penguin brethren and other arctic residents.

The video will be steaming 24/7 until the end of April, so the little guys will have plenty of time to ham it up for the camera. Viewers will have the opportunity to witness penguin feedings, Q&As with the SeaWorld crew and other arctic antics.

Not a fan of the tuxes? Mozilla Firefox has a livestream of three adopted red panda cubs and the Smithsonian’s National Zoo has a collection of live cams including flamingos, gorillas, kiwis (the bird, not the fruit) and lions.
