Rocket Science for Penguins

8 posts in this topic

Stepping over a rope; not a big deal you say? Well, if you are a penguin it might as well be rocket science. After the first one goes, and fall, they seem to have a dialogue amongst each other on how to proceed - with lots of chatter, nodding heads and careful inspection of the rope.

Then the next one boldly goes - and fall....and a third, and a fourth, the fifth one bounces back. But then the sixth one leap ahead and crosses without falling, and look back in surprise, thinking; "How the fck did I mange that?" :D

No wonder the term "bird brains" isn't very flattering.

Penguins are what I like to think of as evolutionary lemons. Sure their design will get the job done, but what on earth where they thinking? Giving up the ability to fly to any habitat you can survive at in exchange for living in the Antarctic as warm blooded mammals... Don't they spend something like 3-4 months starving and huddling together for warmth.

And then when they go to eat, being eatten by several predators...

Very graceful in the water though...
