Got to admit, I've not a great knowledge of animals, but in trying to taste the many cuisines around the world I often pop into the animals section here to see which interesting ones I can lay claim to tasting.

Penguins are not among them though, and I don't recall ever seeing a dish anywhere with penguin meat. Having said that, I'm not sure if it's my mind playing tricks on me or if I remember a time in South Africa when I saw Penguin Egg dish that looked like jelly.

Tried googling and Wiki, but no joy.

One must wonder if there are more flightless birds in the world than there are ones that can fly (chickens of course are the most numerous birds in the world so that is a good start).


Although penguins do actually "fly" in the qi sense of the wor, they just do it underwater

I miss Penguin Choccie bars, my favourite at school. Can you still get them?

Penguins make me laugh. They are one of the inherently funny animals of our planet.

Like wombats.

Did you ever wonder why you never see dead penguins on the ice in Antarctica?

Ever wonder where 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 penguins have a very strong community bond, they are very committed to their family and will mate for life.  They also maintain a form of compassionate contact with their 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 freshly dug grave and sing "freeze a jolly good fellow."

All penguins lack external genitalia. Both sexes look similar, incubate eggs and rear the offspring.

Until now, Galapagos penguins had to be 'sexed' by means of a blood sample. Now a new way has been discovered by the University of Washington. Males consistently have thicker beaks than females.

So all you need is a ruler...
