PENGUINS

A little tidbit of natural history…….

Penguins

Did you ever wonder why there are no dead penguins on the ice in Antarctica – where do they go ?

Wonder no more ! ! !

It is a known fact that the penguin is a very ritualistic bird which lives an
extremely ordered and complex life. The penguin is very committed to its family and will mate for life, as well as maintaining a form of compassionate contact with its offspring throughout its life.


If a penguin is found dead on the ice surface, other members of  the family
and social circle have been known to dig holes in  the ice, using their vestigial wings and beaks, until the hole is deep enough for the deceased bird.


The male penguins then gather in a circle around the fresh grave and sing:

“Freeze a jolly good fellow”

“Freeze a jolly good fellow.”

“Then they kick him in the ice hole.” !!!

You really didn’t believe that I know anything about penguins, did you!  :o)
