Interesting fact about penguins!

I never knew this...






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 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"


"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!
