Dead Penguins

Image used under a Collective Commons License from https://www.flickr.com/photos/volvob12b/8670571081Did you ever wonder why there are no dead penguins on the ice in the Antarctic?

Where do they go when they die? What happens to them?

Well, 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 dead bird to be rolled into and buried.

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

.

.

.

.

“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!
