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


"freeze a jolly good fellow."
