Swiping Rockson July 14, 2006 at 6:18 pm
Some colonies on some beaches just don’t have enough rocks of the right size to go around among adelie nests. So they swipe them from each other. I had mentioned how they will play clips of adelie’s doing this in documentaries and someone asked to see one so here you go. This is a clip from Antarctica: IMAX of an adelie colony, complete with rock swiping and silly music.
