What do you do when you see a large group of people (read penguins) wearing black tuxedos?
You dance with them!
Yes, talking about our fond love for the Happy Feet movies, Penguins are one of the few animals (or birds) that top our list in the coolness quotient!
Here’s a list of 8 reasons that make them super awesome!
1) Penguins, if they lose their egg – they STEAL it (or try to do so)! Yes, if another penguin couple is not anywhere in the proximity, their egg isn’t really safe! Now now, this ain’t cool….or maybe it is!
2) Some species of penguins can mate for life! (Did somebody say libido galore?)
3) Penguins and Paris Hilton have something in common – They love socialising!”Penguins eat, swim and hangout in groups! They’re known to have nesting colonies of up to 10,000 penguins. Woah!
4) Penguins love preening and keeping themselves clean to protect their feathers! Guess we don’t have to worry about that body odour now do we?
5) Ever heard of tobogganing? It’s when you slide on your tummy on ice real fast! And guess what? Penguins do that!
6) Penguins are very picky about their breeding sites! They can travel upto a 100 kilometers in order to find the perfect place. That’s some dedication!
7) Penguins are not afraid of human contact! Hey, they could be our best friends!
8) When penguins are held captive with other penguins of the same sex, there’s a possibility of them engaging in homosexual partnerships! Isn’t that awesome? #LoveKnowsNoBoundaries
