Ross suggested we arm the penguins with their own selfie sticks to fight back.
Penguins on St Kilda's foreshore are suffering from an increase in happy snappers using selfie sticks and GoPro's to get close-up shots.
Colony guide Susie Parker told Ross and John it's become upsetting for the flightless birds.
"The selfie stick's not really the problem, it's the flash on the camera that's coming out," Ms Parker said.
"Penguins don't have eyelids, so they can't blink and their eyes are very sensitive."
