Oh, so THAT'S how it's done

Ever since I got to station, my friend Sean and I, as well as other people on station, had posed the question; "How on earth do penguins mate?". Given their odd stature and physiology, we couldn't imagine any sort of way that it could work. And, of course, we were far too lazy to just google for it, or something.


But, a couple weeks ago, Sean and I were out hiking on one of the nearby islands when I noticed this. And it took me a couple seconds to figure out what the heck was going on.




That, ladies and gentlemen, is how penguins mate. Mystery solved.
