Quest For the Beak: Part V

“Mmm, Gelflings!”

Well, we finally get to see the Giant Petrel King. Giant petrels are known as the vultures of Antarctica. Aside from the Wandering Albatross they are about the largest of the scavenger birds there and able to dominate in the feasting of carcasses. They’re carrion feeding ways earned them the name “Stinker” from whalers. They are also not strangers to feeding on singled out penguin chicks or even sick or weak penguins.

I forgot to mention snow petrels the other day, when Howie showed up in the comic. They are definitely much prettier and smaller than their vulture-like cousins. They feed mostly on fish and krill but will feed on carrion as well. They are also pretty much exclusive to Antarctica being one of the only bird species that breed exclusively on the continent (along with emperor penguins and South Polar skuas). They usually nest in rock cliffs near the sea. Video footage of them bathing in the snow (rolling around on their backs in it) seems to be popular among Antarctic documentaries and is pretty cute as well.

  • Penguin Boy

    Hey Penguin Guru! I know what I wanna do after college (i am a senior in high school now). I want to work at the Penguin Encounter exhibit at sea world Orlando. I need your help with something. I have Never pet a real penguin before and want to make the moment memorable to me. The penguin encounter there has many species of penguin. They do NOT have emperor. I know for sure that they have King (the second largest),Gentoo (the fastest swmming), Adelie, Chinstrap, Rockhopper, and Macaroni and maybe more! Can you help me decide which should be the first penguin that I pet? :sad:

  • Sheena

    Penguin Boy, I think you should pet the Adelies in tribute to Osborne!!! :roll: By the way, I have pet a penguin before in South Africa, and not even at a zoo! It was a penguin sanctuary at the beach at Cape Point, and the colony was HUGE!!!! 😯 😮 And I’m not even in high school yet.

    Love the artwork in the last panel, it kinda freaks me out!! 😮 It sorta looks like an ancient petrel tribe with the cheiftan all-commanding! But how’d a WHALE CARCASS get up there?? 😕 :roll:
    Anywya adore the lookup and the comic! 😛

  • Sheena

    Latest Warriors news!
    If you check Wikipedia, it hints that one of the three kits from The Sight will betray his/her power, and become evil…
    Latest Seasons news!
    I am happy to inform you that my sister and I are making a series similar to Warriors, but called Seasons. The Clans are:
    AutumnClan
    SummerClan
    WinterClan
    SpringClan
    MoonClan (ancient clan, good cats go here when they die)
    FireClan (ancient clan, bad cats go here when they die)
    If the leaders of their Clans’ first names all start with their Clan’s name (say, Autumnmoon for AutumnClan) all at once, it means a prophecy that will be VERY important. Apparently, the Northern Lights are signals for the healers. The novices’ names usually end with “tail”, the gladiators’ and healers’ and mothers’ in anything, the leaders with “moon”. We switch chapters for writing, and we will give you updates as much as possible. We are also working on a comic.

  • steve-o

    Tyler honestly, these new smileys are 100 times worse than wally and osborne smileys. And these new ones are strangers. Wallly and osborne smileys are native to this site. If you dont put W&O smileys back I REFUSE to use these new ones
