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.

except for the singing your info is for the most part is true. During warmer seasons and during migration a ice burial isn't always the available option. So a burial at sea will do...still born or accident death of young are never put out with the tide, always buried in the ice or sand.

An expert is a man who tells you a simple thing in a confused way in such a fashion as to make you think the confusion is your own fault.

That reminds me of years gone by when someone asked "How do you catch a Polar Bear ?"

You make a hole in the ice and sprinkle some peas around it.

When the Bear goes to have a pea, you kick him in the ice-hole.
