Did 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?

This is a question that has been asked many times over the years, since you rarely find a dead penguin lying there on the ice, it just doesn’t happen. So what does happen to all those dead penguins?

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.

I find that really touching, don’t you? It’s a ritual just like us humans might perform on a loved one who has ceased to be.

The male penguins then gather in a circle around the fresh grave and they start to sing in their best penguin voices:

.

.

.

.

“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!

If you would REALLY like to know more about penguins or would love to see some penguin gift items, take a look at Amazon where you can find lots of penguin themed items which we are sure you will love.
