Compassionate 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 off spring
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

"freeze a jolly good fellow."

Hey,,,,, I just send them on!!!

Oh geez now whose the dummy hahahahaha
OK got it now.:)
I saw a program where they showed these little guys travelling sooo far to get to their breeding ground.
Then while the Dads sat on the eggs the Moms went back to feed and then they exchanged egg sitting jobs and the Dads went to feed, then once the babies were strong enough they go back to sea.
