Now that's a warm hug! Emperor penguins get so hot in their huddles they EAT fresh snow to cool down Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-3349517/Now-s-warm-hug-Emperor-penguins-hot-huddles-EAT-fresh-snow-cool-down.html#ixzz3tsOSG6CY Follow us: @MailOnline on Twitter | DailyMail on Facebook
Emperor penguins are more willing to relocate than expected
Satellite images of penguin droppings reveal something pretty interesting. In the face of rising temperatures, emperor penguins in Antarctica may be forced to find new breeding grounds instead of returning to the same spot to mate year after year, new research finds.
The march of the penguins will continue... as long as it doesn't get too COLD!

A recent visit to a remote Antarctic emperor penguin colony found thousands of fuzzy penguin chicks, meaning the colony is even bigger than previously thought. A team from Belgium's Princess Elisabeth Antarctica polar research station estimates there are 15,000 penguins living in four groups at the colony, on East Antarctica's Princess Ragnhild Coast. The team counted the number of chicks demanding regurgitated meals from their parents to gauge the total colony size, because the adults were…
Not only does the video drop some pretty interesting facts on the viewer (Did you know that Emperor Penguins can dive deeper – 535 meters – than a Seawolf class nuclear sub – 443 meters? You did NOT know that.), but it explains why we’re so reluctant and incapable of getting deep under water. The depths of the ocean produce immense pressure and light of any kind gets very scarce very quickly. https://www.good.is/articles/deep-ocean-video
