The Penguin Post

PHOTO CAPTION: The picture above was taken on my last trip to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. It was taken before we had to come home.
I have a deep fascination with penguins. The last time we went to the Monterey Bay Aquarium with Andrew, my son, I kept going back to the penguin exhibit. I seemed more interested in them than anyone in my family. As the day winded down, Rachel, my wife, had to keep telling me it was time to go home.

Penguin Cam
So you can imagine how pleased I was to find out that I could continue to observe the little guys online at Live Penguin Stream. You can also view sharks, sea turtles, sea otters and much more at online. To choose from various different live cams go to Live Web Cams.

March of the Penguins
I recently watched March of the Penguins on DVD and found it to be an incredible documentary and love story of the Emperor Penguin. It is amazing what these guys go through. In the film you see actual footage of a colony of hundreds of Emperor Penguins return to their frozen breeding ground (a 70 mile journey in treachorous weather conditions) and give birth to and care for their little chicks. I strongly recommend it for you Penguin lovers.

Happy Feet Returns to Antartica
Watch a video of a penguin who swam to New Zealand and is being assisted home. He is being returned to Antartica. Check out the video here.
