Old food is better than no food? Probably not the case. I think this time Wally was actually the smart one. No worries though, I’m sure he’ll restock the place by borrowing from one of the active stations there in Antarctica… with his special security clearance and all.

Why Don’t Penguins’ Feet Freeze?

That’s the name of a new book that got a CNN mention recently. It’s actually 115 random science questions and answers but cool that penguins made the title and cover. Guess you’ll have to read the book for the answer…

Or you could go check out this page at CoolAntarctica.com. It has a lot of information about how penguins survive the cold including how their internal system finely adjusts blood flow to their feet to keep them just above freezing. Penguins ain’t afraid of no frostbite. ;)
