If you haven't experienced Penguin Cam, it's penguins. Hundreds of them. Being cute. And awesome. And penguins. And the molting one are mangily precious. AND IT'S 24 HOURS A DAY. OH! And if that isn't enough, JUST WAIT until you see them getting fed or frolicking in the fresh-from-the-hose snow. What I would give to spray their habitat with fake snow! They taunt me with their lively fleshiness, as all I have in my lab are dead, fleshless penguin carcasses. And no, I'm not kidding. About any of this.
Penguin Cam features Sea World's "Penguin Encounter" exhibit and the 24/7 live feed is in promotion of Discovery Channel's new series Frozen Planet. Sea World and Discovery Channel obviously have NO regard for my dissertation. Bastards. Well, seeing that I AM currently writing a paper about pygoscelid penguin bone histology (and 2 of the 3 Pygoscelis species are featured on Penguin Cam), I'm just going to have to pass this off as "research". Anyone know how I go about citing Penguin Cam in my references?
In the mean time, may your life be as unproductive as mine:
